In August 2018, the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment received a State Significant Development (SSD) application for the concept and associated stage 1 works of the proposed new Tweed Valley Hospital.
The Department assessed the SSD application and made a recommendation to the Minister for Planning and Public Spaces.
The Minister approved the Tweed Valley Hospital SSD application for the concept and associated stage 1 works on 11 June 2019.
