Kyogle is a slow grower
THE Kyogle local government area is the slowest growing part of the Northern Rivers, according to new figures from the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
With a population of 9891, the region only grew by 0.3% in 2010/11, compared to the NSW average of 1.1%.
That equates to an extra 31 people moving to Kyogle in the 12 month period.
But it is a different story on the Tweed, which has increased its population by 1.7% between 2006 and 2011.
More than 90,500 people now live in that local government area.
