TWEED SHIRE COUNCIL - GOODJINGBURRA AND MINYANGBAL COUNTRY, BUNDJALUNG NATION

DEVELOPMENT PROFILE
After being rejected by the council. developer Gales Holdings received approval from the Land and Environment Court in 2008 to fill flood prone land north and south of Turnock St for urban development and construct a temporary haul road under DA 05/0004.03. It later received approval to increase the length of the haul road underDA20/0860 though they have not yet commenced these works.

The proposed Gales ‘Masterplan’ across Kingscliff, Chinderah and Cudgen, would see the construction of 2100 new dwellings, parklands, business and education precincts, and an expansion of Kingscliff town centre across 214 hectares of land.

WHERE IS IT UP TO?
Gales Holdings is continuing to work with Tweed Shire Council to achieve planning approval after its masterplan was rejected by the Regional Planning Panel in September 2021 due to concerns about ecology and height.
The local community is calling for a halt to all flood prone land development until at least the recommendations of the flood inquiries have been implemented and the completion of other related work such as the Northern Rivers Resilience Initiative.

WHAT’S AT STAKE?

  • Habitat for threatened species including Koala and Wallum Froglet.
  • Flood risk: The development is proposed to be built on a low-lying, flood-prone area that has recently experienced significant flooding
  • Traffic congestion: An increase in trucks entering the site will introduce significantly negative impacts on the community and people all along the coast including traffic congestion, noise, dust and road degradation.

WHO’S FIGHTING IT?

  • Kingscliff Ratepayers and Progress Association Inc
  • Chinderah District Residents Association Inc
  • Tumbulgum Community Association Inc
