Round 2 of Land Swap applications now open

Tweed Shire Council

Eligible landowners in the South Murwillumbah industrial zone who were directly impacted by the 2022 flood are invited to enter a new Expression of Interest (EOI) process for the remaining land swap blocks at Industry Central.

The Industry Central Land Swap project is intended to be a strategic solution to assist selected land owners or businesses located within the high risk flood zone in the existing South Murwillumbah industrial precinct to move to sites out of the flood zone.

Council has launched a new EOI process to gauge interest in the remaining 4 allotments to be created as part of the original Land Swap project on Lundberg Drive at Industry Central.

Submissions for the Industry Central Land Swap Round 2 open on Wednesday 13 July 2022 and close on Wednesday 10 August 2022.

So far, 5 local businesses along with the Tweed Shire Council Depot have confirmed they will be moving to the new site.

Acting Manager Land and Economic Development Ray Musgrave said this EOI process seeks to find an additional 4 suitable businesses impacted by the 2022 flood who wish to relocate to the flood-free Industry Central site.

“After 5 years of planning, the Land Swap project is now moving swiftly with construction of services due to be completed by early 2023,” Mr Musgrave said.

“We have 4 lots still available, all of which are zoned for general industrial use and range in size from 1,970 m² to 9,140 m².

“This precinct will provide businesses with certainty and confidence to invest in the Tweed.”

An information session for businesses interested in the second round of the land swap will be held on Tuesday 26 July from 4 pm to 5 pm at Murwillumbah Services Club.

Alder Constructions was awarded the $3.18 million contract for the design and construction of all public infrastructure at Industry Central, including the roads, stormwater, reticulated sewer, water supply and telecommunications.

The new allotments are due to be completed in early 2023 and, once settlement has taken place, businesses can commence building their new premises on the site.
