WORK has started on the $200,000 Cowper Jetty and pontoon project.

The jetty is being funded by Clarence Valley Council and is part of the Clarence River way project which is intended to stimulate economic activity along the areas waterways.

"The idea is that people using boats and kayaks will be able to moor and go into towns to use their services," said council deputy general manager Rob Donges.

"We are trying increase economic activity along the river and Ulmarra and Harwood were the first two projects and now it's Cowper's turn," he said.

"The idea is to encourage economic activity along the river."

Mr Donges said he hoped the project will be completed before Christmas.
