Council services

Two council workers in high viz testing water.

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 2022-2032(PDF, 3MB), 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.
