Business Lands

The Business Lands Strategy has been produced to provide a strategic planning framework to guide the future development of and hierarchy of business lands within the local government area.

The project investigates the structural drivers for business development by analysing population projections and market profiles associated with the supply and demand of business land stock.

The Strategy provides informed advice on the location, size, zoning and amount of business land required for sustainable employment generation and business functioning and will be used to guide Council's future zoning of land for business purposes.

Business Lands Strategy

The Review of the Coffs Harbour Business Centres Hierarchy undertaken for Coffs Harbour City Council aims to:

  • identify whether the existing hierarchy, which protects the Coffs Harbour City Centre CBD as the primary retail and commercial centre of the LGA, is appropriate for future growth of Coffs Harbour as a regional city;
  • recommend modifications to the existing Business Centres Hierarchy as appropriate;
  • analyse how the new Standard Instrument business zones should best be applied to the recommended Business Centres Hierarchy for various business zone locations throughout the LGA;
  • provide recommendations as to resultant zoning and built form controls for all B6 Enterprise Corridor zones within both the City Centre Plan area and the wider LGA.

The Review found that considerable research has been undertaken by Coffs Harbour City Council into commercial centres and employment land. This research has identified a clear hierarchy of centres, which has been confirmed by this Review.

The structre of this Strategy will be updated as part of the Local Growth Management Strategy review process to sit as a chapter within this broader strategy.
