Coffs Harbour City Council has developed a plan for the Local Government Area cycling infrastructure and cycling programs for the five year period from 2014 – 2019. The plan was developed with the assistance of the Roads and Maritime Services, and Council’s Environmental Levy program.            

The objectives of the plan are:

  1. Plan and deliver a connected cycling network 
  2. Improve cycling support facilities
  3. Make cycling safer
  4. Encourage greater participation

You can  view the maps associated with the plan using our online mapping tool (make sure you have Coffs Harbour Bike Plan 2014-2019 layer ticked and expanded to select and view sub-layers which show Existing, Proposed, Future works (unfunded) and proposed Coastline Cycleway route).
