Re the issuing of parking infringement fines in Murwillumbah: business owners have noticed the active presence of two new parking officers who are issuing on-the-spot fines.

Murwillumbah business owners are under enormous stresses from the GFC, lack of parking and subsequent loss of revenue because of a strong downturn in the area. We have lost 50 parking spaces owing to the construction of the new Centrelink building and now we are faced with reduced and inadequate long-term parking in the western end of Main Street.

Our staff are having to move their cars every two hours as there is no long-term parking available. The long-term section of the car park is FULL in Knox Park as a result of the loss of spaces. I was booked yesterday as I was unable to find a space in the long-term car park in Knox Park and could not leave the office every two hours to move my car.

I would like to know why Tweed Shire Council has engaged the services of two revenue-raising agents on the streets of Murwillumbah. Surely we are trying to entice people, and particularly shoppers, into the area!
