Large bioenergy facility gets nod

Byron Council’s plan to build a facility that converts waste into electricity at the Byron Bay Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) has been given the green light by the Northern Regional Planning Panel

In just over a week, the coastal township of Kingscliff will be enjoying a large upswing in accommodation occupancy with the number of spectators, athletes and supporters coming to this beautiful location on the northern New South Wales coastline.

The Kingscliff Triathlon is now in its ninth instalment and has a reputation as a social, fun race in an incredible location. The Tweed Shire Council and Destination Tweed together with the Tweed Coast Holiday Parks as the major sponsor, have all supported the organisers and the triathletes during the event’s development phase.

Athletes, friends and families are travelling from across Australia to compete in the country’s newest iconic race for kids, juniors, sprinters, Olympians and teams.

Race director Mike Crawley wanted to acknowledge particularly the community of Kingscliff and Chinderah who are inconvenienced as the race occurs and thanks them for their tolerance.

He hopes all athletes will express their appreciation and respect directly to residents, and that they support local businesses.

Mike said that the weekend has a large volunteer workforce and is generating funds for the local Cudgen Headland surf lifesaving club, the Tweed Valley Triathlon club, the Murwillumbah swimming club, Rotary Tweed South and the local schools.

‘The Kingy Tri is an event that the community can be very proud of given its growth and status as one of the highest sought-after triathlons.’
