How the Strategy was developed

Council completed extensive research and community engagement to develop the draft Community Development Strategy 2020 – 2024. From the feedback received, a number of key factors affecting the Tweed were identified, including the importance of access and inclusion, the need to address growing homelessness, maintaining community safety and resilience to climate change, and the health and well-being of all residents.

It also outlined the need to ensure additional support is available for more vulnerable residents and that there are adequate opportunities for everyone in the Tweed.

The strategy will be delivered through the following four focus areas.

  • The Tweed has vibrant places and spaces
  • The Tweed has opportunities
  • The Tweed is healthy and safe
  • The Tweed is inclusive and supportive
