Our growth under threat, say local distillers

Local independent distillers behind iconic labels Ink Gin and Brookie’s Byron Dry Gin say a longstanding ‘bad’ government policy that taxes spirits unfairly, compared to other alcohol such as wine, is putting thousands of jobs at risk in a ‘dangerous high inflation environment’.

There are six key open spaces in the town of Pottsville and Tweed Shire Council is taking a look at how they might be shaped for the future. 

Residents of Pottsville are being asked to consider and comment on what might work in each of the six areas in a five-minute online survey. The open spaces under consideration are: Pottsville Environment Centre, Pottsville Memorial Oval, Anzac Park, Phillip St Reserve, Ambrose Brown Park, and Hardy Park North.

Council’s Manager Parks and Active Communities Murray Smith said Pottsville was a beautiful coastal town that was well-loved by the local community and enjoyed by the larger Tweed community and holiday visitors each year.

‘Pottsville already has some great playgrounds, BBQ facilities, walking tracks, sports fields and tennis courts but it’s time to take a look at the key spaces we have, see what is working well and think about what we can improve,’ Mr Smith said.

‘We want to hear from a wide range of the Pottsville community so we can rethink how we use the 6 key open spaces and plan some recreational facility upgrades that will benefit the whole community including the youth. We want to hear from as many local residents as possible, including local businesses.

‘The project is at the very early stages of the planning process, so this is the best time to put your ideas forward.’

Ideas that have already been put forward include a pump track, a skate park or elements of a pump track and a skate park that would work alongside each other.

‘This is your chance to have your say and provide input into the future direction of Pottsville’s central open spaces and to help us get it right,’ Mr Smith said.

To get involved, visit yoursaytweed.com.au/pottsville where you can find more information and complete the survey. The survey closes on 24 August 2022.
