Residents stunned by demand

THE Cabarita Beach Residents Association has been hit with an urgent legal demand to return allegedly confidential documents relating to a controversial $22 million caravan park proposed on crown land at Cabarita beach.

Association secretary Cath Lynch, a pensioner, yesterday confirmed she had received a letter from Tweed Shire Council's legal representatives demanding the return of the documents by yesterday afternoon.

Information from the documents, however, has been widely disseminated to people across the Tweed and some had been put on the association's website.

Mrs Lynch said she was seeking legal advice and was hoping for legal aid but had no way of getting that advice by yesterday afternoon.

Meanwhile, the senior council officer who heads up the Tweed Coast Holiday Reserves Trust, Richard Adams, has issued a statement via consultants claming local residents are not getting the full facts about the controversial caravan park.
