Coffs Coast Regional Park - Masterplan Consultations for Sandy Beach and Emerald Beach

Consultations have begun to prepare masterplans for the Reserve and Day Use areas of Emerald Beach and Sandy Beach.
 
The Reserve and Day Use areas form part of the Coffs Coast Regional Park, which is managed in a partnership between the Coffs Coast Regional Park Trust Board, Coffs Harbour City Council and National Parks and Wildlife Service.
 
  • Consultation is being undertaken with all stakeholders including residents, businesses, and community groups to understand the key issues and opportunities.
  • Preliminary workshops have been held with key stakeholders, pupils of Sandy Beach Public School, resident action groups and residents of Emerald Beach and Sandy Beach.
  • Emerald Beach Day Use Area issues included the future treatment of the road, car parking and boat ramp, coastal erosion, and retention of the natural village character.
  • Feedback from the workshops has resulted in the preparation of four concept plans for Emerald Beach.
  • Sandy Beach Day Use Area issues included degraded infrastructure, poor pedestrian access, conflicts between pedestrians and vehicles, and lack of recreation opportunities. 
  • Sandy Beach residents demonstrated a strong consensus on how they would like to see the area developed, so one concept plan exploring possible options was prepared.
 
The concept plans are contained with the consultation reports, which you can download from this page.

Detailed concepts will then be developed and placed on public exhibition following endorsement by the Regional Park Trust Board. A further community workshop will be held to present the detailed concept plans.
