2022 Environmental Citizen of the Year Awards

Two local groups have been nominated for the he Environmental Citizen of the Year Awards, an initiative of The Australia Day Council of NSW in partnership with Return and Earn.

Urgent works are commencing on the construction of a 60-metre rock wall at Kingscliff Holiday Park in the hope that it will protect a toilet block from erosion.

A sandbag wall built by Tweed Council just months ago stopped 25 metres short of the amenities block and sewage station, which are now under threat.

Council admits that the work could move the problem further into the park but say the new affected area is less critical. A spokesperson for the park says there is very limited window of opportunity to build the wall, which can only be done during low tides. The wall needs to be built before Christmas.
