Public Realm Strategy

Council at its Ordinary Meeting 22 June 2017 resolved to endorse the preparation of a Public Realm Strategy. This project is to update Council's existing Open Space Strategy and Street Tree Masterplan as part of a more comprehensive Public Realm Strategy which provides for a broader understanding of open space to include the public realm.

The Public Realm is not just green spaces but extends to all external spaces available for public use, such as: streets, forecourts, squares, bicycle and pedestrian links and waterways.

The Strategy will be utilised across Council to assist with the planning, design and management of the public realm with the ultimate aim of developing a sense of place for Coffs Harbour's public spaces.

The Public Realm Strategy will provide the necessary framework for Council to integrate and coordinate various departments and disciplines to assist in the implementation of a coherent public realm for the community. An integrated approach will allow the effective and efficient delivery of a high quality public realm and its spaces and places for the community.

It is anticipated that this project will commence in August 2017 and is to be undertaken in three stages over a period of three years. ​
