Exhibition of Environmental Impact Statement

The Tweed Valley Hospital project will be assessed under Part 4 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979, consistent with other State Significant Development (SSD) projects. The Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Stage 1 SSD planning application for the new hospital has been lodged with the Department of Planning and Environment. The EIS is the first of two planning submissions for the Tweed Valley Hospital, and seeks approval for the hospital concept and consent to commence early and enabling works on the site.
