CBD Master Plan

Coffs Harbour City Council is committed to the ongoing development and revitalisation of the whole city. We see the Central Business District (CBD) playing a pivotal role through the creation of economic, social and cultural opportunities.

City Centre Masterplan and Projects

The City Centre Masterplan maps the future for our City Centre. The Plan contains a number of strategies and projects that support key priorities previously identified through the Masterplan community consultation process. These key priorities include a focus on revitalising the City Centre to stimulate economic activity.

Read the first part of the adopted Masterplan - Coffs Harbour City Centre Masterplan 2031 and the second part which contains the projects and the third part containing the landscape materials and planting.

We are currently undertaking a survey and would like to hear your thoughts on how this is progressing, please have your say here.

The plan is gradually being implemented throughout the CBD. Some of these projects include:

  
Description
  

​Coffs Harbour City Council and the CBD Masterplan Committee have embarked on an exciting journey to reinvigorate the City Square.

The first stage was construction of the Shared Zone on Harbour Drive, completed in August 2016.

The next stages include instillation of a carpark screen starting in February 2018, to be followed with significant revitalisation works.

  

​New shade sails have been installed at strategic locations across the CBD to provide shelter for pedestrian movement across the CBD and to identify the City Centre as a location.

New sails were installed at Moonee Street as well as Harbour Drive, West High Street and Vernon Street near thier intersections with the Pacific Highway in September 2017.

Shade sail lighting will be installed in January 2018.

In 2018 it is planned to construct a new shade sail near the highway on Park Avenue and at the pedestrian crossing near Woolworths, also on Park Avenue.

  

​Council and the City Centre Masterplan Committee want to build on the great work of street artists in Park Avenue Lane and are exploring potential to expand street art projects to other laneways within the City Centre over coming years.

  

​Major drainage works were undertaken along with removal of the Harbour Drive/Gordon Street roundabout and replacement with traffic lights to improve pedestrian safety and movement through the CBD. This project was completed in August 2016.

  

​Extension of Duke Street is an initiative to facilitate improved traffic and pedestrian flows through the City Centre. Duke Street was extended temporarily during the Harbour Drive-Gordon Street works to provide a traffic detour. Duke Street road works were completed in November 2016. Interpretive historical signage and street furniture was installed and landscaping completed in October 2017.

  

​Castle Street car park underwent a facelift including construction of top-floor shade structures, lifts and a program of structural repairs. The works were completed in 2016.

  

The new Castle Street amenities block was opened in 2014, offering a safer facility which has subsequently been upgraded to include a Changing Places inspired disabled facility.​

  

Contracts have been awarded for the installation of a car park screen for the northern façade of the Park Avenue car park. The screen will provide improved aesthetics in City Square and this will represent the second stage of the City Square revitalisation, following on from the construction of the Harbour Drive Shared Zone in 2016.

Work on the car park screen is expected to be completed in February 2018.

  

​The Coffs Harbour Skate Plaza was officially opened on 26 July 2014.
