Businesses baying as tradies take over street

BAY St businesses at Tweed Heads were upset that their car parks were gone for months during the roadworks.

Now they are accessible, but local shop owner Pastor Lyn Borthistle claims they are being clogged every day by tradies working on the new Ultima building site.

Developer Majeed Tabrizi said while he'd received complaints "every day", he didn't believe any of the workers were intentionally parking outside the businesses.

The council confirmed it had received feedback from Bay St traders about the issue, and would liaise with shopkeepers to identify whether temporary time-limit signage would be needed while the roadworks continued.
