Jack Events Boat Harbour at Tweed Heads is under review and the Tweed council is looking to locals to find out how they want the harbour and surrounds managed.

The new plan of management that is currently under development will cover Jack Evans Boat Harbour Parklands which includes Chris Cunningham Park, the boardwalk and McMahons Beach, Anzac Memorial, Goorimahbah – Place of Stories and east of the Seascape building, the Jack Evans Boat Harbour waterway, Ebenezer Park; and the Old Aquatic Club site and north of Coral Street.

To share your vision of how teh space should be managed you can head to the free Family Fun Day at Jack Evans Boat Harbour on Saturday 27 October from 10am to 1pm and enjoy water activities face [painting and a barbecue.

Manager recreation services, Stewart Brawley said the plan of management would provide guidelines to ensure the Jack Evans Boat Harbour precinct is managed as the recreational and tourist centrepiece for the Tweed Heads city centre.

‘Jack Evans Boat Harbour was constructed as a high quality and accessible regional facility, and we want to ensure its management and future development is reflective of the values and aspirations of the Tweed community,’ Mr Brawley said.

‘Your input will help Council develop its priorities to enhance, protect and manage the precinct to better meet the needs of our growing community.’

If you can’t make the day in the park then either fill in the online survey or make a written submission before 30 November 2018.

Last mayoral candidates Q and A: are you a landlord?

Here at The Echo we have seen and heard the word ‘housing’ come up time and again throughout the local government election campaign period, whether it’s from candidates or other voters.

On the ground work assists evicted women 

We know the region has some of the highest rents, and highest housing costs in Australia. We all know that this has virtually eliminated affordable housing. We hear the stories of women and children being evicted, of couch surfing and living in cars.

What do the Tweed Council candidates stand for?

The final day of voting for your local Tweed Shire Councill candidates is Saturday 4 December at a venue near you.

Today is International Day of People with Disability

This language trend around People With a Disability has tended to emphasise the disability rather than the person, which can lead to derogatory labelling, depersonalisation or impersonal, collective references.
