Silent ma­jor­ity

Tweed Daily News - - OPINION NEWS -

IT’S about time that some­one re­ally thought about the is­sue of the new hos­pi­tal. Neville Chivers, who is a resident of Kingscliff, has come up with the per­fect so­lu­tion of where the hos­pi­tal should be built.

Re­sume some of the land op­po­site, build a multi-storey car park and a multi-storey hos­pi­tal next door. It would all fit in that area. All the es­sen­tial ser­vices are there al­ready. You only have to look at the great hos­pi­tals in Aus­tralia and world­wide – they go up, not out.

We have to con­sider the old and frail and the young who live in the area and need the hos­pi­tal close.

The po­lice sta­tion was built in the CBD as it was the right place to have it. The po­lice agree that the hos­pi­tal should be built in the CBD area.

Miss Hock­ing, lis­ten to the silent ma­jor­ity who don’t want the hos­pi­tal built in the area pro­posed. The res­i­dents of the Kingscliff area do not want the hos­pi­tal built there. The meet­ing at the leagues club should have told you that.

City bureau­crats only want to spend the $534 mil­lion ASAP to look good.

Mea­sure twice, cut once. Do it right the first time.
