Blocks a future hazard

A NEW hazard management strategy predicts 33 blocks of land at a new Tweed Coast development will come under threat from sea-level rise within 90 years.

The draft Coastal Hazards section for Tweed Shire Council's Development Control Plan (TDCP), on exhibition from this week, shows the blocks within the recently prescribed 2100 erosion hazard zone.

It will give potential owners something to think about before building on the new sites. Dwellings at Hastings Point, and sections of Kingscliff's Marine Pde fall within the 2100 mark.

The document outlines restrictions for new buildings and major renovations within immediate, 2050 and 2100 hazard zones. The draft is on exhibition for 60 days. Cabarita Beach Sports Club will host a council community workshop 4.30pm, March 23.
