Park­ing prob­lems

Tweed Daily News - - NEWS / OPINION -

IF THOMAS Re­hfeld is so cer­tain the new Tweed Val­ley Hospi­tal at Kingscliff will al­ter nei­ther the face nor fab­ric of the vil­lage for the worse, I sug­gest he visit the new Gold Coast Univer­sity and Sun­shine Coast hos­pi­tals and chat with their im­me­di­ate res­i­den­tial neigh­bours.

Bo­gan­gar res­i­dents may not ob­ject to fu­ture hospi­tal staff park­ing across their drive­ways and then rid­ing their bikes to work, as hap­pens at both the above-men­tioned venues, but Kingscliff res­i­dents most cer­tainly will.

As for his maths, when the new 450-bed hospi­tal ex­pands to al­most dou­ble, as planned, and each vis­i­tor and the thou­sand-odd staff need to buy their lunches, do their shop­ping, and avoid the two planned paid park­ing venues, where does Mr Rehner think th­ese peo­ple are go­ing to park?
