Proposal to permit medical centre use at Tweed Heads Bowls Club

You are invited to review and provide a submission on a Planning Proposal that seeks to allow a medical centre as an additional permitted use with consent at Tweed Heads Bowls Club.

The land occupied by the Club is currently zoned RE2 Private Recreation under the Tweed City Centre Local Environmental Plan 2012. The development of a medical centre is currently prohibited in this zone.

The objective of this planning proposal is to allow a ‘medical centre’ as an additional permitted use within the existing floor area of the Tweed Heads Bowls Club, Lot 12 DP 803451, at 22-38 Florence Street, Tweed Heads. This amendment could enable the Club to submit a development application to deliver medical services to the local community and visitors which Council could then assess based on its planning merits.

The Planning Proposal, referred to as PP19/0004 (Amendment No.1 to the Tweed City Centre Local Environmental Plan 2012), is on exhibition and open for public comment from 28 January to 28 February 2020.

The progress of the Planning Proposal can be tracked through the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment’s online tracking portal at http://leptracking.planning.nsw.gov.au/
