For the past two decades, usually just before the end of each Financial Year, Council has offered a bulky waste collection service. Sometimes, it is true, the streets of the Cove were not always a beauteous sight for several weeks with some residents putting their bulky rubbish out far too early. Others mistakenly put out items from the Council's will-not-be-collected list. Some of these rejected items stayed by the roadside for weeks afterwards.

tonyhSun, 25/02/2018 - 11:31amI sit here feeling pretty low about the state of the nation and trying to think up something smart to say about the MidCoast Counci debacle. A jet skier flashes past our house inside the oyster leases where kids are swimming.

Further mitigation through hazard reduction burning is being planned in an area west of the Community Hall on private land. As always, seeking approval from the multitude of private land managers ( owners ) is proving challenging. Kirsty has been doing a colossal job with issuing letters to owners.

Brendan Guiney, Director Water Services of Midcoast Council (formerly Midcoast Water) has made the following official statement in relation to proposed activities being undertaken at Tea Gardens:

In early summer there was a group of 4 and now there are 8! There are hundreds of godwits currently living in the Kooragang Island wetlands and Stockton sands after considerable effort by volunteers to preserve the habitats. The Godwits share the amazing East Asian- Australian Flyway migratory path with about 55 other wading birds. Tracking...
