Public markets are conducted on both public and private land within the Tweed.
Markets on private land require development consent approval and are operated by a private person or organisation in accordance with the conditions of consent. Further information about obtaining such an approval can be obtained from Council’s Development Assessment Unit.
Community markets are markets conducted on public land under the control of Council in various locations including Pottsville, Kingscliff, Murwillumbah and Tweed Heads. These markets are not directly controlled or operated by Council. Every three years Council calls for expressions of interest from any person or group interested in operating the markets. Council is currently (12 July to 3 August 2016) calling for expressions of interest for the Jack Evans Boat Harbour and Bells Boulevard Kingscliff markets.
Once the submissions are determined Council issues the successful applicant with an approval under the Local Government Act 1993
, to operate the market for a three year period. All advertisement, bookings and day to day management of the market is undertaken by the current approval holder.
Markets with a frequency of less than four times a year will be assessed in accordance with the Markets Policy (61kB PDF)
and within the requirements of the Event Application and/or Development Consent Process. This includes requests for markets located at indoor Council premises such as community centres, halls and other facilities.
