Feedback on cop shop arrested

THE interest in a police command centre on Marine Pde at Kingscliff has only increased, according to a campaigner against the development.

Anti-development campaigner and Tweed Shire councillor Carolyn Byrne said while she was not aware how many submissions the council has received on the development application, she was sure there were more than last time.

"Absolutely there were more submissions and from a broader area of the community," Cr Byrne said.

"The 1600-signature petition has gone through as one submission."

The public exhibition period for the $5 million Tweed/Byron Area Command for Marine Pde, Kingscliff, closed last Wednesday.

The plans for the command centre were required to be shown again after the NSW Land and Environment Court ruled the first approval was invalid because of concerns with information being presented to the public during the initial exhibition period.

Council officers were unavailable for comment on the number of submissions received.
