Kings Forest concept plan.

This Monday, June 11 there is an open day at the Kings Forest site where 4,500 dwellings on 856.5ha is planned. Local Tweed Valley Hospital Relocate Group will be looking at the potential site for relocation of the proposed site for the hospital and other allied health buildings. There will also be full explanations about what is being done to help the koalas.

However, Team Koala has long opposed the development of the Kings Forest site due to the impact it will have on the Tweed koala population.

The open day will run from 10am till 2 pm. Enter from Depot Road, which is off Tweed Coast Road.

This is an opportunity ‘especially for members of the public to come and see the proposed Kings Forest site for themselves,’ said Barbara Roughan from the Relocate Group.
