Tropical Soda Apple timebomb
The first infestations in Australia of this highly invasive weed have recently been discovered on the Upper Macleay near Kempsey. Councils from Nambucca to Tweed Heads are now on high alert. The plant is described as being a perennial shrub that grows from 1-2 metres in height with leaves and stems containing large white to yellow thorn-like prickles.
Kempsey Shire Council Annual Report 2012-2013
It has been a historic year for the Macleay Valley. The opening of the new section of the Pacific Highway, moving the heavy vehicles out of our main service town of Kempsey, has created tremendous opportunities for our Valley.
Water saving tips
Council is encouraging community members connected to the reticulated water supply to do what they can to save water and reduce the current demand on the water supply system.
