Tweed Shire Council is hoping to get some ideas on how to improve and protect public spaces in Uki’s village centre Council want to look at community input in keeping with the spirit of the area.
Council’s Acting Manager Parks and Active Communities Murray Smith said the community’s input was vital to help inform the draft plan, which in turn would create a long-term vision of how the village’s public spaces can be improved. ‘Uki Village is nestled at the foothills of Wollumbin/Mount Warning and is in the heart of the ‘Green Caldera’ – it’s a small village that is deeply treasured by the local community,’ said Mr Smith.
The draft Uki Village Concept Plan is a proposal to improve and protect the area in the centre of town and will be used to inform future upgrades. So, it’s vital the community provides feedback so we can achieve a shared vision.’
Mr Smith said the draft Uki Village Concept Plan has been developed in consultation with the Uki Public Hall & Recreation Reserve Trust, Uki & District Residents Association and the Uki & South Arm Historical Society. ‘The plan will define a shared vision for open spaces at Uki village centre and will inform Council applications for funding in the future.’
The plan also considers improvements to the existing buildings on land managed by the Uki Public Hall & Recreation Reserve Trust and Uki & District Residents Association.
There will be a Community Information Session at the Uki Farmers Market on Saturday 4 December 2021 from 8 am to 12.30 pm to discuss ideas and provide feedback on the draft plan.

This project is part of Council’s commitment to protect and improve the quality of the Tweed’s open space network. This commitment and the actions planned are described in Council’s Open Space Strategy (2019–2029).
