Tweed’s Kings Forest open day: Monday June 11

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.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
