Council seeks public’s thoughts on best uses for important community space

What do you think are the best uses for Jack Evans Boat Harbour at Tweed Heads?

Council is developing a new Plan of Management to guide its future planning and management of Jack Evans Boat Harbour and is welcoming public input through a survey, written submissions and face-to-face at a Family Fun Day.

The Plan of Management 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.

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.

“We’d love as many people as possible to the survey ‘What’s your vision for Jack Evans Boat Harbour’ or make a written submission before 30 November 2018 through www.yoursaytweed.com.au/JEBH,” he said.

You can also have your say at a Family Fun Day at Jack Evans Boat Harbour to share your vision for Jack Evans Boat Harbour into the future. The free event is on Saturday 27 October from 10am to 1pm (NSW time).  Enjoy a free barbecue courtesy of the Tweed Heads Lions Club, kids’ face painting and water sport activities.
