THE WEEKLY has incorrectly used an image and reference to the Tweed Day Surgery & Specialist Centre building which is not mooted for a housing redevelopment.
The image appeared on page 5 (June 8, 2017) and text incorrectly showed and stated the Tweed Day Surgery building at 38-44 Boyd Street, which is not the address for the recently announced new development.
The site for the social and affordable housing development is instead located across the road at 33-35 Boyd Street as pictured below.
The Tweed Day Surgery & Specialist Centre is a privately owned building and will remain that way.
The Weekly would like remind readers that the Tweed Day Surgery & Specialist Centre is open as normal.
The Weekly would also like to apologise to all businesses that occupy the Tweed Day Surgery & Specialist Centre.
A correction will be printed on Thursday, June 15.
The corrected story is below:
THE NSW Government has announced a tender to develop a vacant site at 33-35 Boyd Street, Tweed Heads, into a private, social and affordable housing development of up to 50 units available in a bid to address mounting housing shortages and increasing homelessness.
The 1,900m2 site is zoned R3 Medium Residential Density and allows for a building height of 28m.
Of the 50 units the Land and Housing Corporation will commit to purchase 15 social housing dwellings.
The remainder of the development will be private and affordable homes.
The site is open for tenders until July 31, for more information visit www.tenders.nsw.gov.au
