Rejected Terranora development back on agenda
A CONTROVERSIAL development at Terranora, which some Tweed councillors say will threaten views, is now in the hands of the Joint Regional Planning Panel.
Last month Tweed Shire Council rejected a development proposal for 420-434 Terranora Rd, Terranora which would see seven lots developed.
The developer has now perused the proposal through the Department of Planning and Infrastructure under their gateway policy.
At Thursday's monthly council meeting councillor Katie Milne said the Tweed was desperately in need of tourist spots and they "should not just be lost to private development".
"We're at great risk of loosing that site for the greater community."
"We could get some better outcomes here."
Cr Gary Bagnall agreed.
"I have grave concerns with this development at Terranora," he said.
He said it was a beautiful outlook which had exceptional views, that slowly, but surely would see "little things coming up".
Both councillors wanted council to explore alternative options for the land, but it was knocked back.
Councillors then received and noted the report updating council on the planning department's decision to refer it to the Joint Regional Planning Panel.
