Andrew Bennett, Tweed Heads.
Tweed Shire LNP Councillor James Owen has publicly announced that he fears the Tweed Shire will run out of water within 10 years.
This public scaremongering comes from a Councillor who continually votes in favour of commercial water mining in the Tweed. An unregulated industry which allows huge profits to be made selling our water to the likes of Coca-Cola. The water extraction is un-metered and sold back to us in plastic bottles. The whole industry is a massive threat to the Tweed environment and supported by Owen and his ‘development at any cost’ faction of the Council.
