Client: Coffs Harbour City Council
Location: Coffs Harbour, NSW


Jetty Foreshore – Precinct 1

The Harbour and Jetty Foreshore precinct has developed ad-hoc since the pioneering settlement of Coffs Harbour. The old town centre and trading part has attracted significant development not conducive to its potential. Three development concepts options have been prepared for assessment to achieve social, economic and environmental sustainability objectives and land ownership issues relative to the local Indigenous peoples The plans include main activities, passive recreation, tourist, commercial and retail development infrastructure, environmental preservation and community facilities in various densities.

Park Beach – Precinct 2

‘Putting the Park back into Park Beach’ is the overall objective of the master planning for this distinctive tourist precinct and city beach environment. A predominant recreation and tourist accommodation precinct, Park Beach is to reestablish it’s prominence as the major city beach and holiday precinct whilst preserving the social and environmental qualities of the foreshores, streetscape and parklands within this development.
