A COUNCILLOR wants the council to reconsider a submission to the NSW Government on a Tweed development.

Cr Katie Milne is putting a motion to the council next week to write to the government expressing "concerns" on environmental issues with the King's Forest development.

Cr Milne is moving that the council write to the Minister of Planning to "express serious concerns with the Kings Forest development" in particular in light of the council's application to list Tweed's coastal koalas as endangered.

Should dogs be banned at Kings Forest?

This poll ended on 23 October 2012.

Yes - 56%

No - 43%

This is not a scientific poll. The results reflect only the opinions of those who chose to participate.

"Council advises the above that councillors no longer support dogs of any size in Kings Forest," Cr Milne said in the motion to be voted on next week.

She is also calling on the department to seek specialist advice on improved sustainability outcomes due to this developments significance for the Tweed shire's environmental significance.

The council had approved a submission in January that Cr Milne voted against.

The submission was changed to remove a dog ban and support the development.
