Restoration work will begin on waterways and adjacent land in Tweed left damaged by the recent floods, bushfires and drought.

Member for Tweed Geoff Provest MP has welcomed the NSW Government’s $2.4 million Riparian Restoration program saying it will go a long way to help landholders and the wider community.

“This Government has shown time and again it cares about the regions and that it will continue to offer support after a challenging past few years,” Mr Provest said.

“The $49,930 that will go towards weed control and revegetation of damaged riparian areas is a critical step to help Tweed recover and become more resilient to extreme weather events into the future.

“I would like to congratulate Tweed Landcare for their successful project application and I thank them for their contribution to our community.”

“Restoring riparian areas can lead to improved water quality and stabilise banks to reduce further erosion and provide a better habitat for wildlife,” Mr Provest said. 

“This investment by the NSW Government will ensure that we continue to protect these areas that are so critical to our region.”

This program is being run by Local Land Services with the projects being delivered by Landcare and other natural resource management groups.

Works are expected to be complete by September 2023.
