Council is seeking Expressions of Interest (EOI) from any person or group interested in operating markets at Jack Evans Boat Harbour at Tweed Heads from August 2022 to 6 November 2023.
Expressions must address specific issues for the provision of food for sale, stall types, waste avoidance/sustainability and enhancing community and cultural experiences.
Tweed Shire Council's Manager Building and Environmental Health Denise Galle said Council was pleased to be able to reoffer the market program at the picturesque Jack Evans Boat Harbour.
“With recent changes at Jack Evans Boat Harbour markets and the impacts of the recent floods and COVID-19, there is a new opportunity for markets being held at the location,” Ms Galle said.
“Council would like to provide more opportunities for local goods, services, arts, crafts and organic products, as well as entertainment, such as musicians, buskers and artists.”
With planned upgrade works going ahead in the northern precinct of the parkland, applicants should only consider the primary use of the southern precincts within their application.
Applicants should read the Market management plan guidelines 2020 and the Markets Policy 2020 on Council’s website before beginning their Expression of Interest.
The Markets Policy and Jack Evans Boat Harbour Development Consent sets out the frequency, operating times and stall numbers for the markets.
The guidelines include the Market Management Plan Assessment Matrix, which documents the assessment criteria and weightings and contains a checklist of all the relevant information an expression needs to address.
“The EOI is a comprehensive submission process and to be successful applicants must fully understand the requirements of the market management we seek,” Ms Galle said.
Expressions of Interest close at 12 pm on Wednesday 29 July 2022.
To assist applicants to understand the requirements and assessment process, Council staff will be available for appointments on Wednesdays from 9 am to 12 pm.
To book an appointment or for more information, contact Council’s Environmental Health Unit by calling (02) 6670 2400 or emailing TSC@tweed.nsw.gov.au.
