Draft Open Space Strategy

Consultation has concluded

The Draft Open Space Strategy 2019-2029 is the umbrella document which will provide direction for the planning, development, and management of Tweed Shire’s open spaces, sport and recreation facilities for the next 10 years. An Implementation Plan will be presented as a separate document to the strategy and will guide the delivery of the Open Space Strategy 2019-2029.

The strategy is the product of extensive consultation with residents, stakeholders, open space users and visitors. We engaged and listened to the community to determine what needs to be done over the next decade to protect and enhance the open space network for future generations.

The draft strategy was open for public comment from 4 September 2018 to 16 December 2018. We heard from over 1,200 people via in-person community conversations and online engagement. We also visited local high schools and worked with a number of community groups.

During this period, Council sought to better understand the level of support for key open space projects identified in the strategy. Community engagement activities focused on Tweed’s local communities prioritising a series of actions for each of the 14 local profile areas. The outcomes of this stage of community engagement will specifically inform the development of the Implementation Plan.

The Draft Open Space Strategy, the Implementation Plan and the community engagement report will be reported to Council on 15 August 2019.

Thank you to everyone for their contributions, involvement and feedback. We share your passion and pride in the Tweed and we are committed to work together to preserve the Tweed lifestyle and make better decisions.
