How will you improve Tweed Shire?

Welcome to Tweed Shire local campaigns hub — where everyday people can start and find campaigns on local issues they care about.

From public libraries to kerbside recycling and affordable childcare, we’re surrounded by the legacies of everyday people who started campaigns to make their local area a safer, fairer and more thriving place.

Do you have an idea for what would make Tweed Shire a better place? Maybe there’s a local river that’s threatened by pollution or a domestic violence shelter at risk of closure. Perhaps you’d like the speed limit lowered around your kids’ school.

Click the “Start a campaign” button to start your petition now, write a first draft (it won’t be visible until you share it), or just check out what’s involved. Otherwise scroll down to sign and support campaigns started by your neighbours.

    Tweed Council: Build a Pedestrian Crossing on Dry Dock Road
    Many elderly people live along Dry Dock Road. Because of traffic movement, it's too dangerous for them to cross from the built-up side to the picnic facilities, public walking track and river view. The road needs a pedestrian light with sound to make the crossing safe for our elderly. We, the Blind and Vision Impaired Support Group request that a safe pedestrian crossing light be installed. The cost should be between $5000 and $10 000, a relatively insignificant amount for the degree of pleasure and independence it will offer these worthy people.
