Promoting and working for appropriate development in the Tweed Valley and the broader Northern Rivers of NSW
WELCOME! Join us in our work for a sustainable Northern Rivers.
COMMUNITY VOICE is an open and diverse network of Tweed residents who are working towards electing seven community-minded Councillors on September 10, 2016 for a new era of Local Government in the Tweed.
THIS NEW ERA will ensure:
less secrecy in Council decision-making;
that all community groups and individuals are treated equally by Council;
that the attitude of some councillors and bureaucrats that “they know what’s best for us” is brought to an end and people will be better informed, truly consulted and valued,
THIS NEW ERA will:
Bring residents and business together to share ideas and foster consensus;
Acknowledge the value of green space for people and for native flora and fauna and ensure that this value is not compromised;
Protect the lifestyle of Tweed residents against poorly planned growth.

Northern Rivers Guardians will support rallies and marches taking place all around the world to demand action on this most urgent of problems. If the mass extinction is allowed to take place because of human pollution, I suspect our species will have a tough time surviving.

Dear Northern Rivers Guardians,
Our hard-working Secretary , Barb Tyler, wants to pass over her duties to someone else because she has too big a workload in other areas of her life. We hope that Barb will continue on the Committee.
This is a fantastic opportunity for someone interested in activism to become more deeply involved with a dynamic community organisation. Northern Rivers Guardians, Inc was formed in 2009 and campaigns for appropriate development in our region, especially around the Tweed River Valley. The main duty for NRG Secretary is to take Minutes at regular monthly meetings and help prepare the agenda for the next meeting. Help with letter/submission writing is appreciated, but not required.
If you would like to try being NRG Secretary, please contact us !
Love to hear from you!
