A Development Application is currently under review by Tweed Shire Council for an extension of the Harbour Terrace balcony and remodelling of the existing outdoor area at the rear of Twin Towns. 

The new area will create a picturesque, open space where members can relax outdoors and enjoy one of Twin Towns’ most valuable assets – expansive views over Jack Evans Boat Harbour, the Tweed River and beyond.

Once completed, the balcony extension will add an additional 140 square metres of space and allow a non-smoking area for alfresco dining and drinks. 

CEO Rob Smith said the move is in response to many requests the Board has received from non-smoking members who wanted to enjoy a drink and a meal on the balcony.

“We assure our smoking members they won’t be overlooked as the new extension will allow half the space to be designated non-smoking, while the other half will continue to be a smoking area.

“The entire balcony will remain a smoking zone outside of meal service hours to respond to the users of this space during the late evening and into the night. 

“We believe the new design will be a win-win for all members and the opportunity to dine or have a drink outdoors with waterfront views will be incredibly popular with everyone who visits the Club.”

“Once our DA is approved by Council, it will be all systems go on the new works, which we expect to begin around April 2021,” said Rob.
