Tweed Shire election boiler plate 2021

Tweed Shire encompasses a range of different urban and rural environments that require a clear vision for the protection and enhancement of both.

Key issues that have faced the shire over the last council cycle have been water mining, the management of the rail line and rail trail, environmental protection and development.

With a population of around 98,382 in 2020 the increasing demand for housing has been seriously impacted by short term holiday letting like the other LGAs in the region.

The Tweed Shire elects seven councillors who then elect the Mayor, for two-year terms, and Deputy Mayor, for one-year terms, from their ranks.
