The NSW Environment Protection Authority has refused to act on breaches by a landowner at Limpinwood in the Tweed Valley who has cleared large tracts of old-growth forest under a controversial policy, according to anti-logging campaigners.
A demonstration has been sparked for this Thursday by the destruction of high value forest and koala habitat through illegal logging and road building in Environment Protection Zones (EPZ) near Limpinwood, between Chillingham and Tyalgum.
Illegal logging and roading was inspected yesterday by Tweed Shire Council and the EPA on a site near Limpinwood – a site described as a World Heritage Areas that is 'irreplaceable sources of life and inspiration – places of such value that the international community has agreed they must be conserved for all time’.
Tweed Shire Council has found unauthorised clearing in the Environmental Protection Zone in Limpinwood by landowner, Hewittville Holdings.
Tweed Shire Council will drop proposed court action against the owner of a property near Tyalgum where alleged illegal earthworks caused massive pollution of a nearby waterway, prompting a major clean up.
