Local Government Week

Local Government Week 2021 logo Tweed Shire Council joined councils across NSW to participate in Local Government Week from 2 – 8 August 2021.

With the theme of this year’s event being ‘Locally Led’, Local Government Week provides a chance for people to discover just how much this tier of government does and how they can become more involved in their own Council.

While most people know Council is responsible for local roads, rates and rubbish, fewer may be aware of the many other services Council provides, from operating our award-winning Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre and Tweed Regional Museum, to maintaining sports fields, aquatic centres and protecting our internationally significant environment.



Due to the rapidly evolving COVID-19 situation, events organised by Tweed Shire Council to mark Local Government Week were postponed until further notice. The Council meeting on Thursday 5 August still went ahead.
