Local Growth Management Strategy General Review

​​Elton Consulting has been engaged by Council to undertake a general review of Council's Local Growth Management Strategy (LGMS).

The revised strategy will replace Council's Ou​r Living Settlement Strategy. The revised strategy will provide a State Government Endorsed blueprint for future development and growth in Coffs Harbour to 2036. The revised Strategy will be underpinned by the Land Capacity Assessment Audit (October 2014) which provides baseline information relating to supply and demand for land.

It is anticipated that a revised document will be placed on exhibition in the coming months concurrent with a draft chapter on residential lands prepared as part of the Residential Lands Review Project.
