Stop whingeing over Tweed Hospital site

Marianne Melnikas, Banora Point.

I am appalled that the Richmond Federal MP Justine Elliot has stuck her nose into this matter.

Health Infrastructure called for Expressions of Interest (EOI). I believe there were around 30 submitted. The criteria from Health Infrastructure was 15km from the coast, easy access to the M1 and flood free. I would imagine any EOI that did not meet these requirements didn’t make the cut. Are these people who didn’t make the cut now doing this as revenge?

I recommend everyone go to the latest on Tweed Valley Hospital Site.

By the way, I bet the other landowners did not know approval was already in place for 30 house lots on the site.

    The house lots are not on the red soil. Other site were not even looked at.

    Why do we need a new hospital at all seeing the problem seems to be car parking for staff and visitors . It is extremely frustrating for outpatients to keep appointments due to distance of how far away they are parked in suburbia so why not save a few quid and build a 6 story car park on the river side of the block and spend the money on health services for each Tweed Community .
