A PROPOSED development at King's Forest will once again be the focus of environmentalists and community groups when the final draft of stage one is released for exhibition next month.

Leda Developments, the proponents of the 4500-lot project, has finalised the plan after receiving feedback from the NSW Government.

Leda Development spokesman Reg van Rij said the developer was ready to lodge the final draft after receiving the "preferred project report".

"We will be lodging the final version by the end of the week," Mr van Rij said.

Mr van Rij made the announcement during a public access meeting at Tweed Shire Council chamber on Tuesday.

"I'm asking (councillors) to alert their colleagues, consultants and those who have an interest in it," he said.

Mr van Rij said Leda wanted as much community consultation as possible when the plan was on exhibition.

King's Forest had already received a lot of attention from protestors who organised a rally at the site when the initial stage one plan was put on exhibition earlier this year.

The announcement of the final plan going to the public has coincided with The Greens councillor Katie Milne requesting that the Tweed Shire Council write to the state government about concerns on removing a dog ban from the plan.

"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 Thursday.

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.
