JULY TCA GENERAL MEETING

The TCA General Meeting for July was held on Tuesday 11 July in the hall.

The Hall was open from 6.45 pm and those attending enjoyed Tea, coffee, cake and the opportunity to catch up informally prior to the meeting.

Key items discussed were:

ROAD SAFETY

Community concern about safety on our roads came to the fore again with another fatal accident on the Tweed Valley Way.  It was the subject of broad discussion at our last meeting.  The community is keen to identify the options for improving road safety and work with the relevant levels of government and related agencies to ensure is that risks are reduced and safety of our community is enhanced.  Attached is the summary from the June meeting.

Councillor James Owen, (Local Traffic Committee Delegate) and Ray Clarke, Tweed Shire Council Traffic Engineer were our guests at the meeting and participated in the discussions. They have undertaken to take on board issues raised and discussed at the meeting.

The results of these discussions are being documented in the meeting minutes, together with action points which will be circulated soon.

 FLOOD RECOVERY AND RESILIENCE

Our Flood Subcommittee met last week and has prepared a list of issues for follow-up on behalf of the community.  Steve Smith provided a report that was discussed at the meeting.  More details to come also in the meeting minutes.

 B.O.M. (BETA) LINK FOR TUMBULGUM

At the recent Post Flood Community Forum, strong representations were made for a Tumbulgum specific entry to be included on the BOM site, due to impacts on river levels at the village from our unique positioning at the junction of two significant river catchments.

As as result, the BOM has produced a BETA (Test) page which provides current and forecast weather information relevant to Tumbulgum
