Two ticks for $3m tennis centre
THE $3 million tennis centre planned for Terranora has now been granted both council and community approval.
The application for the centre on Henry Lawson Dr was approved earlier this year, however, because the land to be leased was community land, Tweed Shire Council had to advertise, place a sign on the site and contact adjacent landholders.
When the centre was approved, Tennis Terranora Inc secretary Bruce Waight said he was hoping for a lengthy lease.
The lease granted was 10 years with a further 10 year option.
According to a council spokesman the proposal did not attract any objections.
Construction is expected to take place in three stages.
The first will be a public amenities block.
Stage 2 includes the main club facilities, including an office and 52-space car park and the third stage will feature an enclosed lounge, with outdoor viewing seating for the courts.
The club's home at the moment is on the former Terranora Country Club site at Bilambil Heights.
