CBD facelift thrown into doubt

TWEED Shire Council will look to the State Government for a grant if the $613,000 promise from the Federal Governnment falls through for the Tweed CBD upgrade.

The previously announced Federal Government grant to fund the Bay and Wharf Sts facelift has been thrown into doubt by the election result.

Council engineer Warren Boyd, who is spearheading the project, said he had still not received confirmation the funding would be available despite inquiring on a weekly basis since the election.

"At the moment we're still proceeding as if we're getting the money," he said.

Concerns have also been raised by Tweed Chamber of Commerce about the lack of parking on Wharf St which is set to house the new police headquarters.

There is also a plan to remove five spaces and replace them with trees during the street upgrade. Vice president Cr Warren Polglase said they would support the HQ location but raise an objection about the lack of off-street parking.
