A Bennett, Murwillumbah
Last week we wrote to Tweed Shire Councillor, Pryce Allsop requesting his assistance in cleaning up an area of Murwillumbah where homeless people sometimes sleep in an attempt to make the area more comfortable for the homeless.
We were not surprised that Allsop fobbed off this request suggesting that it was up to members of the community and not the Council to carry out this work and he might arrange some cleaning equipment for us. This coming from a Councillor who was elected on a platform ‘to resurrect and beautify Murwillumbah CBD’. Yet more broken promises from Allsop who in ten monthshas only voted for scrapping any hope of a Murwillumbah rail service, the demise of coastal koalas, approval of an industrial complex in an endangered koala corridor (Black Rocks), support for commercial water mining, support for high rise development at Kingscliff and the list goes on from the ‘development at any cost’ Council faction member. What ever happened to his election promise to support ‘eco-tourism’ and the environment?
