THE community has a chance to participate in the selection of the site of Tweed Valley Hospital, through the council’s Tweed Reference Group, which is aimed at helping councillors make informed decisions when discussing possible site locations with the State Government.
“At the moment we’re not being informed at that level,” Mayor Katie Milne said.
“We can be better informed with the issues the community is concerned with. We can have a discussion with the community so we get a broad range of community members.” Applications for the reference group closed on June 8. No date has yet been set for the first meeting. All seven councillors will be joining the Tweed Council Reference Group.
