We're preparing a masterplan for Norries Headland. The aim is to improve the quality of public open space and recreation opportunities, protect and conserve public land for future generations and protect the natural environment and cultural values.


Share your vision for Norries Headland

The masterplan will define a shared vision for open spaces at Norries Headland and will inform Council applications for funding in the future.

The Norries Headland Masterplan includes public open spaces at 4 locations:

  1. Johansen Park
  2. Norries Headland Park
  3. Norries Headland boardwalk
  4. Lions Park

The Norries Headland Masterplan includes public open spaces at 4 locations: Johansen Park, Norries Headland Park, Norries Headland boardwalk and Lions Park

Share your vision for the future of open spaces in Norries Headland to help us refine the draft. Review the draft masterplan drawings and take the survey, share your ideas by dropping pins on the interactive map or participate in community meetings.

Contributions will close on Sunday 10 October 2021.


What a masterplan is

A masterplan is a long-term vision for how an area can be cared for and/or developed into the future. It may express how an area can grow and change over time. It can also express a commitment that an area remains the same or be preserved.

Essentially, the masterplan expresses 'the plan' for the area. It's often implemented using a staged approach with certain aspects of the plan implemented as funding becomes available.


Why we're developing a masterplan for Norries Headland

Norries Headland (Photo: Ryan Fowler)Norries Headland is a beautiful natural environment, well-loved by the local community and enjoyed by an increasing number of visitors each year.

The impact of the increasing number of users means a plan is required to ensure its natural beauty is preserved for future generations.

A draft masterplan will be on public exhibition for comment by the community and ultimately endorsed by Council.


Partnering with the community

A community working group, made up of local residents and representatives from organisations including Cabarita Beach/Bogangar Residents Association, Cabarita Progressive Business Association and Cabarita Boardriders, was established at the inception of the process to inform the draft masterplan drawings.

Watch the videos of Community Working Group members and hear what they have to say about Norries Headland. Council will continue to work with the Community Working Group and the wider community to develop the Norries Headland Masterplan.

To help us draft the masterplan drawings, Council hosted meetings with the Community Working Group, the Aboriginal Advisory Committee and an external consultant/landscape architect to explore the issues and opportunities for the site. These drawings are now being presented to Tweed residents for comment and feedback.


Improving open space in the Tweed

Norries HeadlandThis project is part of our commitment to protect and improve the quality of the Tweed's open space network. This commitment and the actions we plan to take are described in the Open Space Strategy (2019–2029).

Developing the masterplan for Norries Headland open spaces is one of our key actions to deliver on the Open Space Strategy (2019–2029).

Read the key findings, issues and opportunities from the strategy to help you to better understand the context for the masterplan.
