Match point for tennis submissions
PUBLIC submissions for a proposed $3 million tennis complex at Terranora close today.
Tweed Shire Council has so far received one submission raising issues in relation to parking, security and noise.
The complex would be located at the end of Henry Lawson Drive and feature 12 fully lit tennis courts and a clubhouse.
Terranora Tennis Inc. has identified the site as an ideal location for its club as it is more central to Terranora than the Bilambil Heights centre currently in use.
Club members say there will be no impact on nearby residential properties and the use of the facility by residents for recreation purposes will improve the amenity of the region.
Shade tree planting has also been proposed on the western side of the building to act as a wind break.
The site is maintained as a sporting field but is not used by any particular sporting body.
Tennis Terranora Inc is a not-for-profit community-based organisation that relies on funds raised by members and donations or grants from outside organisations.
Submissions can be made to the Tweed Shire Council general manager.
