A TWEED councillor wants Tweed Shire Council to stop talking about a dam at Byrrill Creek to secure future water supply for the shire.

Councillor Dot Holdom has put a motion at today's council meeting to place a moratorium on any dam proposal at Byrrill Creek for the next 20 years.

"We need to focus on Clarrie Hall Dam," Cr Holdom said.

Cr Holdom said when the rescission motion to stop the Byrrill Creek Dam was passed in October last year a motion to raise the wall at Clarrie Hall Dam was also lost, leaving the Tweed with no plan for future water supply.
