Tourist cafe proposed

A CUDGEN fruit stall could be transformed into a tourism-oriented produce store and cafe if development approval is granted by Tweed Shire Council.

Obstetrician Dr Ian Kettle and Michele Stephens have owned the land at Lot 2 Cudgen Rd for about seven years and plan to develop a $180,000 agricultural-based tourism facility.

The couple have enlisted Planit Consulting to help them throughout the development application phase.

Spokesman Brock Lamont said the plans included an educational component where people could learn more about how their food is produced, as well as a shop and cafe.

He said the existing roadside stall would be lifted and incorporated into the building.

You can view the plans on the Tweed Shire Council website.
