Meetings to discuss use of waterways in Tweed region

ANYONE who uses the waterways between Tweed Heads and Wooli may find a new Regional Boating Plan Tweed - Clarence Valley Region interesting reading.

The online report created by the NSW Government's Maritime Management Centre discusses boating infrastructure on the Far North Coast and measures responses from boaters about the adequacy of navigation aides, storage and access and law enforcement.

The plan will help to prioritise future projects in order to "enhance the overall boating experience".

The aim is to have a stronger focus on delivering projects that have strategic benefits for the region, while keeping waterways safe and improving accessibility.

Public meetings will be held this week at Ballina and Tweed Heads to discuss the plan. The first is tonight at Twin Towns Services Club Tweed Heads from 6pm.

The Ballina meeting will take place tomorrow from 6pm at the Ballina RSL Club.

Submissions on the draft report should be emailed to by July 20. The project team will also discuss key findings with local councils.
