Trees ‘safe' in proposed park

TREES at Cabarita's proposed holiday park have been declared “safe”.

Tweed Coast Holiday Park Reserve Trust executive manager Richard Adams said there were misconceptions about the area to be developed.

“The actual proposed holiday park site is not directly opposite the Bogangar Public School, it is actually much further south,” Mr Adams said.

“Under the proposed precinct plan, this northern vegetation community will be protected, restored, rehabilitated and revitalised, offering the local community a more valuable community asset thriving with biodiversity.

“If and when the project proceeds to the next stages, the trust will mandate more thorough environmental examination, and planning is undertaken as a part of the development application process.

“While certain residents in the community are opposed to the development, we have also had many members come forward in support, including many local business owners who feel Cabarita can only benefit from the holiday park.”

Trust chairman, Tweed Mayor Kevin Skinner said the precinct plan was released jointly to maintain a transparent position.

“We are acting in the best interests of the community, ” Cr Skinner said.
