Organisers are pushing ahead with plans to hold a rally this Sunday against a proposal by Boral to expand its sand mining at Minnamurra River.

Boral is currently seeking planning approval to dig two new sand mining pits within 150 metres of the Minnamurra River wetlands. 

Both Kiama and Shellharbour councils have opposed the plans .

On Sunday, members of the community will rally at the mouth of the Minnamurra River to form a human sign on the headland and paddle out to oppose the Boral plans.
