I’m a pretty keen reader of the letters pages in our local papers.
I’ve become concerned about Tweed Council’s planners and wonder why the general manager doesn’t pull them into line.
Kingscliff’s three storeys is an important part of its attraction for everyone. Why do they want to interfere with it? Someone very powerful must want this.
All the councillors we elected knew about this long-standing desire. Are all of them down there in Murwillumbah in the thrall of developers and real estate agents?
Let me tell them. Visitors from the Gold Coast love coming here to relax and escape the mayhem up there. Visitors from Byron Bay are escaping from traffic chaos and parking meters. International tourists love the place. To the rest of us it is home.
Council took a backward step with the one way. The slide should not continue with tall buildings. They’re whittling away our lifestyle and I can only believe it’s all because of short-term monetary gain for someone.
PS. By the way, who on earth is running our local community association? The silence is deafening.
