Council services

We work hard to make the Tweed a better place to live, work and play. 

From managing our parks and gardens, to keeping our streets clean - Council provides more than 50 services.

These services are led by our Community Strategic Plan, and are funded mostly by the rates you pay. 

Read about how we plan and report to the community, and our values, vision and mission.
