Jetty4Shores Project

Council adopted the Jetty4Shores Concept Plan, implementation plan and preliminary budget estimates at its Ordinary Meeting on 24 October 2013.  View the report and  resolution on our Agenda and Minutes page.

These plans were developed by a project team consisting of Coffs Harbour City Council, representatives from Crown Lands and a Community Reference Group. An extensive 3 month exhibition was held from May to August 2013. A total of 1348 submissions were received in response to the exhibition.


Stage 1, being the Jetty Walkway, is now completed and was officially opened on 25 October 2015. The Walkway is a five-metre wide decorative concrete shared pathway/cycleway, which tells the story of our Aboriginal and European heritage, the Jetty structure and the industrial use of the Foreshores.
Council has received funding from the Australian Government's Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development's National Stronger Regions Fund to help complete the next stage of the project.
Construction of the 60 Space car park was finalised in early November. This marks the completion of the first phase of construction on the Events and Activation Hub.
Detailed design has been completed for the plaza and terraced steps onto Jetty Beach, a boardwalk linking the plaza to the head of the historic Jetty and the events and market area. This work will be put out to tender in early January 2017, with an expected construction start date of April 2017.
The detailed design documents for stages 2 - 4 can be viewed below.
