    The $1.2 million Tweed Heads Civic and Cultural Centre redevelopment is nearing completion,with construction on track to be completed in early December and an official opening planned for early 2020.

    The upgraded facility includes an outdoor plaza with a direct pathway for easier access to the library and auditorium and Council’s Tweed Heads Administration Office, contemporary landscaping, an improved drop-off area, accessible parking, better lighting and a more accessible after-hours library book return.

    From Monday 9 December 2019, access will be available to the library and auditorium from the front entrances again and the public will now be able to use the front car park off Brett Street.

    Tweed Shire Council’s Manager Community and Cultural Services, Robyn Grigg said the upgrade has provided an attractive, accessible and functional meeting place.

    “It looks modern and refreshed and we hope the community will enjoy the new space to meet for coffee, attend a show at the auditorium and enjoy all that the library has on offer,” Ms Grigg said.

    “We understand there were some changes to parking and access to the facilities during the upgrade, and Council would like to thank the community for their cooperation, patience and flexibility during the construction period,” she said.

    The new social enterprise café in the plaza is almost complete and will open to the public in early 2020 serving barista coffee, tea and snacks.

    “The café will be a wonderful addition and provide real benefits to the community as the income from the not-for-profit café will support the delivery of social and community programs,” Ms Grigg said.

    “The café will also generate jobs for people in the Tweed, specifically for young and older people, people with disabilities and others who need support to enter the workforce,” she said.

    A technical upgrade of the Tweed Heads auditorium was completed in March, which included an electrical and lighting upgrade that will improve lighting energy efficiency by almost 80 percent per hour of use, and improvements to the stage to enhance functionality and to cater for a variety of performances.

    The project is jointly funded by the Australian Government’s Building Better Regions Fund and Tweed Shire Council.

    The $1.2 million Tweed Heads Civic and Cultural Centre redevelopment is well underway,with construction on track to be completed before Christmas and an official opening planned for early 2020.

    A technical upgrade of the Tweed Heads auditorium was completed in March, which included an electrical and lighting upgrade that will improve lighting energy efficiency by almost 80 percent per hour of use, and improvements to the stage to enhance functionality and to cater for a variety of performances.

    Work on the enhanced forecourt, library return chute and reading room, accessible car parking and social enterprise café is progressing well.

    The upgraded facility will include an outdoor plaza with a direct pathway for easier access to the library and auditorium, contemporary landscaping, an improved drop-off area, accessible parking, better lighting and a more accessible after-hours library book return.

    Tweed Shire Council’s Manager Community and Cultural Services, Robyn Grigg said she was thrilled to see progress on this attractive and functional community space.

    “These works will not only enable better accessibility to Council’s offices, the library and auditorium, they will provide attractive and functional spaces where people can meet, have a coffee and attend a show at the auditorium,” Ms Grigg said.

    One of the most exciting aspects of the redevelopment is the social enterprise café that will be established in the plaza to serve barista coffee, tea and snacks. Income from the not-for-profit café will support the delivery of local social and community programs.

    “The café will provide training and employment opportunities for young and older people, people with disabilities and others who need support to enter the workforce,” Ms Grigg said

    “It will be a wonderful opportunity to have an accessible space and provide opportunities for the community.

    “This will create a fantastic cultural space for both current and future generations of residents and visitors to enjoy,” she said.

    Car parking arrangements will remain in place until the project is completed. Council thanks members of the community for their corporation, patience and flexibility during the construction period.

    The project is jointly funded by the Australian Government’s Building Better Regions Fund and Tweed Shire Council.
