The NSW Government announced plans in June 2017 to develop a new major referral hospital on a greenfield site in the Tweed-Byron area. In 2018, the NSW Minister for Health announced the preferred site was located at 771 Cudgen Rd, Cudgen.


In August 2018, Health Infrastructure NSW (HINSW) lodged a State Significant Development (SSD) application for the concept proposal and associated stage 1 works of the proposed new Tweed Valley Hospital.


The Department placed the Environmental Impact Statement for the SSD application on public exhibition until 13 December 2018.

All SSD application documentation related to the new Tweed Valley Hospital is available at the Department’s Major Projects website.
