Council seeking public input on Jack Evans Boat Harbour precinct
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.
