Councils Demand No Cross-Border Restrictions

Posted:

Councils say towns along the length of the NSW-Queensland border would benefit from an agreement that eases restrictions between the two states.

The agreement, due to take effect in July, strips away a legal barrier that has restricted transport and trade between NSW and Queensland around the Gold Coast and Tweed areas.

The deputy Warwick Shire Mayor and chair of the Border Region Organisation of Councils, Doug Cutmore, says he will be writing to the premiers of both states asking them to extend the agreement along the length of the border.

“I don’t think it’s been thought through enough when it was done to include the whole of the border areas,” he said.
