Evans Head Fit For Parks - Outdoor Gym Stations

Richmond Valley Council is interested in providing free outdoor gym stations in two locations along Evans Head Riverside to help promote health, fitness and social inclusion. ‘Fit for Parks’ will enhance the Evans Head area, an already popular family holiday destination, which has a very active community, and its riverside is the heart of the town for residents and visitors alike.

The chosen equipment design promotes interaction between users, and encourages people into outdoor activities at these open air venues. Richmond Valley Council has identified increased facilities in parks and open spaces and healthy active lifestyles as key priorities for residents through recent Community Strategic Plan community consultations over the past 18 months.

These stations will encourage exercise and healthy lifestyles as well as promote social inclusion within the community. The stations are also beneficial to seniors with both stations including elements to help increase flexibility and mobility in joints.

Comments regarding the outdoor gym stations are welcome. If you would like to make a submission, address it to the General Manager, Richmond Valley Council, Locked Bag 10, Casino NSW 2470 or email council@richmondvalley.nsw.gov.au

Notice of amendment of the Plan of Management for the Richmond River Foreshore Reserve

Richmond Valley Council recently undertook a review of the Richmond River Foreshore Plan of Management recognising its association with the Woodburn Riverside Precinct Masterplan, adopted by Council in June 2017 following extensive community consultation.

Council is required under the Local Government Act to revise and register changes to the plan, and notify the public of the process. The draft amended Plan of Management and the adopted Riverside Precinct Masterplan will be on display for a period of 28 days, with comment received up to 42 days.

While the plans are closely associated, the Plan of Management addresses the operational and statutory aspect of the reserve, and the masterplan illustrates the landscaping and building works proposed for the strategic future of the reserve. Comments regarding the draft Plan of Management are welcome. If you would like to make a submission, address it to the General Manager, Richmond Valley Council, Locked Bag 10, Casino NSW 2470 or email council@richmondvalley.nsw.gov.au You can also make a submission via our online form below. The draft Plan of Management and the Riverside Precinct Masterplan are available at Council’s Customer Service Centres in Casino and Evans Head, or can be viewed and downloaded by clicking on these links:
