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.
