Council wants to place CSG-free signs around Tweed

TWEED Shire Council has long held a stance against unconventional gas exploration in the Tweed and, if supported by the community, will install 'Gasfield Free' signs throughout the shire.

Since passing a motion to oppose coal seam gas exploration in the Tweed in 2011, the council has continued to promote a firm position at State and Federal Government levels against CSG and other unconventional gas operations.

With community consultation, panels will be added to township and village signs scattered across the shire, reading 'Tweed Shire - Gasfield Free'.

Should Tweed Shire Council be involved in installing "gasfield free" signs around Tweed?
