Welcome to our Wooyung Defenders website
What you can do:
- The Tweed and Byron Shire communities were not consulted
when this development was originally approved in 1988. The large
community interest of all surrounding communities today reflects the
desire to have a say in what goes on in their Shire and to be able to protect this last piece of undeveloped coastline.
- This is the last piece of green undeveloped coast left in the Tweed Shire.
We need to protect it for the next generations.
- There is an un-approved helipad on the site plan.
This will be used for frequent scenic helicopter flights in the surrounding area, creating a noise nuisance.
This was not in the original 1988 approval but there is a danger of it
being assumed to be approved, see Tweed Shire Council meeting minutes
of 26th Sept. 2006.
- The water supply to the development is currently not planned
for by any neighbouring community and will place a heavy burden on the
already depleted water supply of the expanding residential communities.
The affected community is likely to be Pottsville.
- Most traffic to and from this development is expected to
come through Pottsville. Pottsville businesses are not likely to
receive extra custom as the "Total Destination Resort" contains its own
- Write to the Tweed Shire Council questioning the un-approved helipad.
- Write to the Tweed Shire Council asking them to use their full statutory powers to enforce the conditions placed on the DA.
