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.

  1. 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 .
