Local Growth Management Strategy General Review

Council is currently reviewing and updating its Local Growth Management Strategy (LGMS). The revised Strategy will replace Council's existing LGMS and will guide how and where growth will occur in Coffs Harbour over the next 20 years, in ways that continue to protect Coffs Harbour's unique environment, and balance different land uses and development interests.

The LGMS strategically outlines the future growth of the Coffs Harbour Local Government Area (LGA) and builds on the strategic priorities of the DPE's North Coast Regional Plan 2036.

The LGMS identifies where and how urban development will occur, including housing, rural, industrial, commercial, and infrastructure land uses.

The growth strategy will comprise a number of separate, but related Chapters (previously known as Strategies) beginning with a vision and Strategic Approach Chapter 1-4, and Chapters 5-8 relating to specific land uses such as rural, large-lot residential, residential, and employment.

Each Chapter will be placed on separate public exhibitions over the coming months.
