Since Pryce Allsop was elected as a a Tweed shire councillor he has disappointed the electorate in many ways as he continues to renege on his original promise to support and protect the environment and encourage eco-tourism.
As a part of his ‘development at any cost’ faction he has voted for the demise of the coastal koalas, in favor of commercial water mining, support the unsustainable over-development of the Gold Coast airport and even support raising the building height limits to high rise on the Tweed Coast.
We request that he does at least one good thing for the environment and raise a council motion to urge the NSW government to introduce legislation to ban single-use plastic bags and encourage local retailers to voluntarily reduce and ultimately ban single use plastic bags.
Australians use about 3.9 billion single-use plastic bags a year. As consumers and voters we all have great power to influence business practices, government policies and ultimately the health of our environment.
