Police station fight gets scale

KINGSCLIFF residents are preparing for another fight to keep the police headquarters off Marine Pde.

Tweed Shire Council is putting the development application for the Kingscliff police headquarters on public display again next week.

Campaigner to stop the initial development Carolyn Byrne said she had already received 10 submissions from concerned residents on the new DA.

"I've got 10 already since Friday and I don't know what the council's received," Ms Byrne said.

"I'm not against a police station in Kingscliff just that facility on that site."

This time around the group against the development has a scale model of the proposed police station to show people the size of the station.

"My neighbour made it up a couple of weeks ago," Ms Byrne said.

"So many people are visual people.

"They were misled. This helps them to understand the size of the development."

Ms Byrne said the model would be shown at the Kingscliff markets with plans to put it in the library.

The DA will be placed on public exhibition from September 12-26.

Ms Byrne represented the Tweed Business and Residents Focus Group in the NSW Environment and Land Court.

Residents made submission to the first DA with concerns about adequate parking and traffic the new station would create on Marine Pde.

Tweed Business and Residents Focus Group took the state government to the NSW Land and Environment Court after it approved the initial application.

In July, the court deemed that DA was invalid because of problems with the approval process.

Last week, NSW Police and Tweed Shire Council decided to redo the application process with the same plans.

According to the council, those who made previous submissions on the development application will be notified of the new exhibition period, however they will need to make fresh submissions for their comments to be considered.
