    Tweed Shire Council is calling for Expressions of Interest from appropriately qualified persons for a Tweed Rural Land Strategy technical reference panel.

    The Tweed Rural Land Strategy Reference Panel will comprise qualified professionals, experienced local rural landowners and other persons with a direct and recognised interest in the future of rural land in the Tweed. The panel will provide a technical review of draft documents before they go on public exhibition, and act as a technical resource to inform and guide best landuse practices and outcomes of the Rural Land Strategy.
