    Council's strategic planner, Matthew Zenkteler, met with the Rural Villages Strategy reference panel on Wednesday 3 September, and a copy of his presentation is now available for download here on Your Say Tweed.

    The presentation provides a summary of the consultation undertaken so far and discusses the project management approach for the next 'Design' phase, which involves the drafting of a Rural Villages Strategy.

    It also outlines the proposed structure of that draft document and overlaps with other Council strategies, particularly the Rural Lands Strategy.

    If you have any questions about the presentation, or the Rural Villages Strategy generally, please contact Council's Planning Reforms Unit on 02 6670 2503.

    Thank you to everyone who came along to one of our 'Discovery and Dreaming' community workshops and/or took the time to make a submission on the Rural Villages Strategy discussion paper.

    Although formal submissions have now closed, your feedback is always welcome.

    You can review recorded feedback from each of the 'Discovery and Dreaming' workshops under the 'Community Feedback' tab. 

    We are now moving into the 'Design' phase, where we create what will be in the future of our rural villages.

    During the 'Design' phase, Council officers will use your ideas, suggestions and feedback collected throughout the 'Discovery and Dreaming' phase to prepare a draft Rural Villages Strategy.  This process is expected to take a few months, but once the draft is complete, we'll make it available for you to review and will again invite your feedback.

    In the meantime, if you have any questions or comments regarding the Rural Villages Strategy, please contact Council's Planning Reforms unit on (02) 6670 2503.

    The final workshop in the 'Discovery and Dreaming' phase will take place at Tyalgum Hall on Tuesday 12 August from 5.30 until 7pm.

    The workshop was originally planned for Tuesday 8 July, but had to be postponed due to the Tyalgum Hall being unexpectedly made unavailable for use on that date. 

    Come along and share your ideas and priorities for the future of the rural villages.

    Don't forget, formal submissions on the Rural Villages Strategy discussion paper are invited until close of business on Friday 8 August 2014.
