Jack Evans Boat Harbour Precinct
Client: Land and Property Management Authority
GeoLINK coordinated a team of experts to assist the Land and Property Management Authority prepare a call to the market for Crown land at the Jack Evans Boat Harbour precinct at Tweed Heads. The sites are prominent Crown land sites within the Flagstaff Hill / Duranbah Beach locality. Suggested futures for the sites were included within the Tweed Heads Town Centre Master Plan (2004), within the context of the ‘Jack Evans Boat Harbour Precinct’.
The Land and Property Management Authority (LPMA) resolved to prepare a ‘call to the market’ to achieve the development of these iconic sites. The intention of the call to the market was to determine a preferred property development outcome for each of the sites, devised from a master planning process.
The outcomes responded to relevant planning considerations derived from a detailed understanding of the sites and their context. They were strongly founded on a clear understanding of the market, the economic environment and both the commercial return and the public benefit objectives of the Authority.
GeoLINK led a team that included urban designers and economic analysts. In addition to project management, GeoLINK staff provided detailed town planning and environmental assessment, feeding in to the master planning and project feasibility assessments.
