  • Feedback welcomed on Water Cycle Management in the Tweed

    Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link
    06 Jan 2014


    Tweed Shire Council is again welcoming community feedback on the reviewed Integrated Water Cycle Management (IWCM) Strategy, which is on exhibition until Friday 21 March 2014.

    The IWCM strategy was adopted in 2006 and has been used to guide resourcing and prioritise management actions for water supply, sewerage and stormwater systems.  In line with best-practice, independent consultants are now reviewing the IWCM strategy so it remains relevant to current and emerging issues and community desires for future water cycle management. 

    Community engagement has been central to the review of the IWCM Strategy so far, with input gathered through a series of public exhibitions, surveys, interviews, workshops and ongoing liaison with state government agencies.  To build on this, written submissions are again being invited until close of business on Friday 21 March 2014.

    Submissions should be posted to the General Manager, Tweed Shire Council, PO Box 816, Murwillumbah NSW 2484 or emailed to tsc@tweed.nsw.gov.au.

    The Your Say Tweed page for Council's Rural Villages Strategy is now live and community members are invited to share their experiences of village life.

    The Rural Villages Strategy is all about recognising the distinct characteristics that make each village special, and identifying the opportunities and challenges that are likely to arise as Council and the community seek to protect and promote these inherent values.

    If you live, work, learn or play in the villages, Council invites you to share your stories, photos and videos that capture the unique essence of each of the seven villages.

    A public discussion began in November, with a series of community meetings to identify priorities for the future of key rural villages across the Tweed: Burringbar, Chillingham, Mooball, Stokers Siding, Tumbulgum, Tyalgum and Uki.

    Further community meetings are scheduled for early 2014, when a discussion paper will be presented based on feedback collected via Your Say Tweed and the November community meetings.

    In addition, expressions of interest will be called early in the new year for village residents keen to join a reference panel for the study.

    To join the conversation, visit www.yoursaytweed.com.au/ruralvillages.

  • Help to develop a strategy for rural villages

    04 Nov 2013

    Council is engaging with the community to develop a Rural Villages Plan, which will:

    • look at settlement patterns that have emerged in Tweed Shire's rural areas
    • identify distinct characteristics of each village
    • provide a framework to meet the future needs of the resident, business and tourist communities.

    See the Key Dates section for information about a series of community conversations in villages throughout Tweed Shire, to explain the background of the plan and how it will be development. The workshops will also provide the community an opportunity to discuss their experiences of rural village life and how they view the long term future of the Shire’s rural villages.

    The plan will aim to achieve planning controls that help balance urban growth, the protection of agriculture, village character, heritage sites and the environment.

    As part of the project, Council will liaise with communities to investigate land suitable for development that would make a meaningful contribution towards achieving growth targets in the Far North Coast Regional Strategy.

    For more information about the plan, visit the Planning Reforms page at or contact Council's Planning Reforms Unit on (02) 6670 2503.
