Development raises ire

TERRANORA residents have concerns about the proposed Altitude Aspire development.

A group of residents have banded together to voice their concerns to the Newland Developers.

The residents said they were not against the development itself, but rather the way it was being done.

The development group is seeking to turn farmland into 317 housing lots.

Richard and Anne Wright have made their home in the area for the past 30 years.

“We are concerned about the loss of views, the increased traffic that will be generated and the lack of sewer and storm water,” Mr Wright said.

“We are also concerned that the proposed development does not suit the topography of the area.”

“We believe the subdivision should be designed to fit the topography rather than altering the topography to fit the subdivision,” Mrs Wright said.

Fellow resident Bruce Steele said the group wanted all residents to be aware of the development and have the chance to have their say.

“Residents have until April 4 to voice their concerns. We are just concerned about the way the development is being planned, not the development itself,” Mr Steele said.

A spokeswoman from the Tweed Shire Council said the council last year voted to contact the Minster for Planning to state their dissatisfaction with the process.

“Council was unhappy with a number of aspects of the development and the lack of planning for the overall site,” the spokeswoman said.

The development proposal can be viewed at Tweed Shire Council offices and the Kingscliff Library.

“We are also concerned that the proposed development does not suit the topography of the area.”
