Despite this subject development proposal being prohibited on State Significant Farmland (SSF), and promises there would be no further development on the Cudgen Plateau SSF the Cudgen Connection proposed development has come to life yet again.
“As you are aware we have a proposal for a $300M+ health, education and essential worker housing precinct for the Tweed and Northern Rivers community.
The concept proposes essential worker housing, a mental health hospital, childcare and retail to support essential workers, a bus interchange, community hub, university campus, private hospital and medical suites and medihotel.
“It will expand the services offered by the neighbouring Tweed Valley Hospital and adjacent Kingscliff TAFE, to create a world class health and education precinct on a 5.7-hectare site at 741 Cudgen Rd.
“Throughout the past 18 months we have engaged with Tweed residents regarding the proposal and have adjusted plans to meet the needs of the local community, including the removal of a farmers’ market and seniors housing from proposed plans while increasing essential worker housing to cater for hospital staff at the new Tweed Valley Hospital, TAFE, Cudgen Connection workers and students.
