Fingal Head Locality Plan

Council is in the process of undertaking targeted place-based planning for key localities throughout the Shire through the development of Locality Plans.

Locality Plans are part of Tweed Shire Council’s commitment to balancing environmental, social and economic considerations to develop the Tweed in a sustainable way

Locality Plans are forward thinking and community driven documents that differ for every locality because they respond to the characteristics and needs that are unique to the area and the people who live there.

The purpose of the Locality Plan

The role of the Fingal Head Locality Plan will be to confirm the community’s Vision for Fingal Head, to protect the valued local character, environment and heritage; improve public spaces; support housing needs and identify if there any growth needs or opportunities in the area.

We will actively involve the community through different phases of the consultation before adopting the finalised community vision and locality plan.

  • Have your say at a Family Fun Day in Fingal Foreshore Park

    In May, many Fingal Head locals attended Community Conversation sessions at the Fingal Rovers Surf Club to share their thoughts about the future of Fingal Head and help inform the development of the Fingal Head Locality Plan.

    It is clear from the community's contributions that many residents share common beliefs about what they love and value about Fingal Head, what they want to protect, opportunities they see for Fingal Head in the years to come and what they want it to look and feel like in the future. A report providing a detailed summary of the community feedback will be available on this page soon.

    At the request of attendees, Council has used many of the common themes raised in the community feedback to create different options for the community's vision for the future of Fingal Head. These options are just a starting point and the community is encouraged to review them and provide feedback before work begins to draft the Fingal Head Locality Plan.

    A Family Fun Day in the Park will be held on September 14 at Fingal Foreshore Park and you will have an opportunity to review the proposed options for the Community Vision and let us know if you think we are on the right track.

    So come along, have your say about how the new park should look and feel, and tell us whether any of the proposed visions are close to describing your future Fingal Head.
