Tweed Council say that draft plan Plan of Management for the Jack Evans Boat Harbour precinct, provides guidelines to ensure the precinct is protected and used as the recreational and tourist centrepiece for Tweed Heads city centre.

Council is inviting the public to have their say on the plan.

A four-page companion guide has been developed to summarise the plan’s proposals and to explain what a plan of management is. It also covers how topics raised during the community consultation, which took place in 2018, have been addressed and incorporated in the draft plan.

Council is now seeking public feedback on the draft plan to ensure it is reflective of the values and aspirations of the Tweed community.

The document is also consistent with the Tweed Shire Open Space Strategy and Council’s Commercial Recreation Activities on Public Open Space policy.

The draft Jack Evans Boat Harbour Plan of Management is on exhibition until Tuesday 8 December 2020. For more information and to have your say, visit yoursaytweed.com.au/JEBH.
