ABOUT 120 people have come together to discuss with a developer his plans for a new retirement village at River Heads.

The developer called the Tuesday night meeting after holding preliminary talks with the council earlier this week.

The project has been slated for the end of Havenna Rd, near Cove Bvld, at River Heads.

Turtle Cove, a resort complex, has had approval to go ahead on the site for many years but a shift for it to instead become a retirement village has happened more recently.

Division 7 councillor Darren Everard attended the community meeting to listen to the concerns of residents and also the plans of the developer.

Features being proposed

  • High-care aged care
  • Golf course
  • Shopping facilities
  • One-storey and two-storey residential facilities
  • Bowls club
