Tweed Coast Comprehensive Koala Plan of Management

The Tweed Coast koala population has declined by approximately 50 per cent in the last decade and without action there is a very real risk that koalas could disappear from the Tweed Coast within the next 15-20 years.

Tweed Shire Council has prepared a draft management plan to help the Tweed Coast koala population recover to more sustainable levels over the next two decades.  The plan also aims to provide a level of certainty to landholders regarding the development potential of their property. 

Community consultation has been an important part of the plan's development thus far, including ongoing liaison with the Tweed Coast Koala Advisory Group.  

Council invited members of the broader community to provide feedback on the draft plan during a consultation period from Tuesday 21 October until Tuesday 2 December 2014.

Submissions on this project have now closed. 

For further information, please contact Council on (02) 6670 2400.

  • Lots of koala conversation at the Pottsville Markets

    There was plenty of activity at the Tweed Shire Council stall at the Pottsville Markets on the weekend, as people took the opportunity to chat to Council officers about the draft Tweed Coast Comprehensive Koala Plan of Management.

    Thanks to everyone who dropped in to ask questions and provide feedback. 

    If you missed us at the markets, don't worry, there's still plenty of opportunity to have your say.

    Council will be hosting another stall at the Kingscliff Markets on Saturday 22 November and you have until COB on Tuesday 2 December to make a submission.
