EA for development goes on display

THE Environmental Assessment for a proposed mixed tourist and residential development at Cabarita Beach goes on display to the public tomorrow.

The three-storey structure, planned for the corner of Tweed Coast Road and Cypress Crescent, will comprise 24 units, six of which have been nominated for tourism accommodation. The proposal also features a 54-space underground car park.

The site is occupied by a caravan park.

The Director-General of Planning's recommendations originally called for the Environmental Assessment (EA) to address the visual impact of the proposal in the context of surrounding development and relevant mitigation measures.

“In particular address impacts on the amenity of the foreshore, overshadowing of public reserves, including the Cudgen Nature Reserve, loss of views from public places and cumulative impacts,” the recommendations said.

The EA will be on display until October 5.

It can be viewed at the Tweed Shire Council Murwillumbah and Tweed Heads offices, Kingscliff Public Library and at http://majorprojects.planning.nsw.gov.au/page/
