Mayoral Flood Appeal 2022

The February 2022 flood was one of the biggest in the Tweed’s recorded history. Many areas recorded unprecedented river levels and the damage bill is likely to exceed the devastating 2017 flood event.

While local residents and businesses may be eligible for assistance from the Federal and NSW Government’s Natural Disaster Declarations, many people in the Tweed have been significantly affected by this flood events and will require extensive support to get back on their feet.
