Tweed Daily News - - NEWS -

The com­mu­nity is be­ing en­cour­aged to have its say on the fu­ture of the Jack Evans Boat Har­bour precinct in Tweed Heads to help Coun­cil de­velop a new man­age­ment plan for the area.

The plan will guide fu­ture plan­ning and man­age­ment of the precinct and will in­clude guide­lines to en­sure the area is a high qual­ity and ac­ces­si­ble fa­cil­ity, re­flec­tive of the val­ues and as­pi­ra­tions of the Tweed com­mu­nity.

Jack Evans Boat Har­bour is the recre­ational and tourism centrepiece for the Tweed City Cen­tre. Af­ter be­ing re­vi­talised through an $8 mil­lion pro­ject in 2010, the boat har­bour was recog­nised with a na­tional award.

The Draft Tweed Open Space Strat­egy, cur­rently on ex­hi­bi­tion, nom­i­nates the precinct as a re­gional-level fa­cil­ity and as such recog­nises it as a sig­nif­i­cant and valu­able as­set that pro­vides sig­nif­i­cant ben­e­fits to the Tweed com­mu­nity and vis­i­tors.

The Plan of Man­age­ment aims to suit­ably man­age com­mu­nity-friendly, ac­tive and pas­sive uses of this pub­lic space, cater­ing for all ages and user groups while en­sur­ing that any neg­a­tive im­pacts are suf­fi­ciently mit­i­gated. Pub­lic in­put will help Coun­cil de­velop its pri­or­i­ties to enhance, pro­tect and man­age the precinct to bet­ter meet the needs of our grow­ing com­mu­nity.
