Kingscliff erosion a nightmare
ONE of the Tweed councillors who pushed hardest for urgent action on erosion at Kingscliff Beach says he is disappointed that bureaucratic processes have delayed getting government funding.
“I'm disappointed and surprised,” said Cr Kevin Skinner, who at Tweed Shire Council's last meeting just over a fortnight ago, called for urgent action.
Earlier this week, Mayor Warren Polglase revealed the application to the State Government for natural disaster funds to pay for either a rock revetment wall, pumping sand on to the beach or both was still being prepared.
“I would have assumed it would have been done straight away. Everything seems to take so long,” said Cr Skinner.
“It's just a typical surprise I've been getting every day I've been a councillor.
“It's just a bureaucratic nightmare.”
