  • Have your say on Tweed's draft Community Infrastructure Framework

    Now is your chance to have your say on a draft Community Infrastructure Framework, which aims to support a network approach to planning and delivery of community and cultural facilities across Tweed Shire.

    This draft framework is currently on public exhibition until Friday 12 September 2014 and acknowledges that Council's community and cultural facilities are at different stages of planning, design and delivery.

    A Community Infrastructure Framework considers the network of Council facilities
    and spaces that support community and cultural activities across Tweed Shire including
    community activities and events, human services and programs, performing arts, cultural
    activities and exhibitions, as well as libraries.

    "The Community Infrastructure Framework will be a tool for coordinating these diverse activities across the network and to ensure Council has the information required to make good investment and management decisions for local communities and across the whole Tweed Shire," Council's Community Development Officer - Social Planning, Ian O'Reilly, said.

    "A network approach means that we will consider how facilities can be designed, located and managed to contribute to the full complement of community facilities and spaces required across Tweed Shire, rather than just operating as individual facilities."

    Council will consider all feedback on the draft framework in October 2014, and once the framework is endorsed Council officers will then prepare a Community and Cultural Facilities Network Plan.
    Work on the network plan is scheduled to commence in January 2015 and will consider detailed requirements for facilities across Tweed Shire.

    "This will include looking at how facilities are used to benefit the community and funding and investment options for improving our community and cultural facilities network," Mr O'Reilly said.

    "The Community Infrastructure Framework is an important step in establishing a more coordinated approach to planning, design and delivery of our facilities, and will assist Council to source the funds required to deliver important facilities for community and cultural activities in the Tweed."

    For more information, visit the Community Infrastructure Framework page here on Your Say Tweed, or contact Council's Community Development unit on (02) 6670 2276.

    'The Future of Kingscliff ' was the focus of an enquiry by design workshop at the 7th Making Cities Liveable Conference held at Salt in July.

    The workshop aimed to stimulate new conceptual thinking through the use of 3D massing blocks over scaled aerial photos of the Kingscliff town centre.  Participants included town planners, urban designers, architects, landscape architects and Councillors from across Queensland and NSW, who were interrogated  about key planning and urban design parameters including building height, setbacks, land use, public domain, connectivity and traffic management principles over three key town centre sites. 

    Outputs from the workshop, including a sketched concept plan and photographs of the 3D models built on the day, will be used to generate discussion around the development of options for the Kingscliff Locality Plan when they publicly exhibited as part of this planning process.

    A copy of the conference presentation delivered on the day is included here on Your Say Tweed for community reference.

    A detailed overview of the workshop scope is included on the Liveable Cities Conference website
