Community Infrastructure Framework

Tweed Shire Council aims to improve how we plan, manage and deliver community and cultural facilities across the shire.

To help us do this, we gathered information from community and tenants/occupants of Council’s community and cultural facilities; analysis of Council's asset management records and audits were conducted. This information helps us to understand the community's current and future infrastructure needs.

In October 2014 Council adopted the Community Infrastructure Framework. The framework acts as a guide for how Council plans, designs, delivers and manages its community and cultural facilities.

The framework supports a network approach, which means that Council will consider how we will design, locate and manage facilities to complement existing community facilities and spaces across Tweed Shire (rather than operating as individual facilities).

There are four key areas in this stage of engagement we need to consider when planning community infrastructure:

  1. Community Feedback – What you, other users of Council facilities, and the general public say that they need.
  2. Audit and actual demand – Council has a responsibility under the Local Government Act NSW 1993 to ensure that the goods, services and facilities we deliver, own, and/or manage carry out activities that meet the current and future needs of the community; and are maintained and renewed accordingly.
  3. Demographics and social trends - How our community is predicted to change in to the future.
  4. Standards of Service – Ensuring that we deliver appropriate service for our population now and into the future.

This is currently a closed consultation forum for occupants/tenants of Council owned facilities. A broader cconsultation phase will follow in conjunction with the development of the Community Development Strategy.
