Jack Evans Boat Harbour Plan of Management

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Council has developed a draft Plan of Management to guide its future planning and management of Jack Evans Boat Harbour and is welcoming public feedback on the draft plan.

The Plan of Management will provide guidelines to ensure the Jack Evans Boat Harbour precinct is protected and used as the recreational and tourist centrepiece for the Tweed Heads city centre.

The draft plan has been informed by the results from the community consultation undertaken in 2018, which included the What’s Your Vision for Jack Evans Boat Harbour Survey. The draft plan is also consistent with the Tweed Shire Open Space Strategy and Council’s policy for Commercial Recreation Activities on Public Open Space and has been approved by the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment for public exhibition.

As shown below, the areas that the Plan of Management will cover are:

  • Jack Evans Boat Harbour parklands which includes Chris Cunningham Park, boardwalk and McMahons Beach, Anzac Memorial, Goorimahbah – Place of Stories and a section of John Follent Park east of the Seascape building
  • the northern and eastern sections of the Jack Evans Boat Harbour waterway
  • Council managed sections of Ebenezer Park
  • north of Coral Street adjacent to Ebenezer Park.

Further, a guide to the draft Jack Evans Boat Harbour Plan of Management has been developed. The four-page guide:

  • explains what a plan of management is
  • provides a summary of what is proposed in the draft Plan of Management
  • outlines how the big topics raised in the community consultation are addressed.

Council aspires to have Jack Evans Boat Harbour as a high quality and accessible regional facility, reflective of the values and aspirations of the Tweed community. Your input will help ensure Council’s priorities to enhance, protect and manage the precinct outlined in the draft plan meet the needs of our growing community.


Please review the draft Jack Evans Boat Harbour Plan of Management as well as the guide and provide feedback by Tuesday 8 December 2020.
