Coffs Harbour Local Growth Management Strategy

Coffs Harbour City Council currently has a Local Growth Management Strategy (LGMS) which provides for a planned release of land within the Coffs Harbour Local Government Area (LGA) to 2031.

This Strategy is currently being revised and updated to achieve the community's aspirations for Coffs Harbour as it grows into a regional city by supporting effective and integrated planning across the LGA to 2036.

These current updates relate to four separate projects:

1. Local Growth Management Strategy General Review

This review includes an update of the format of the document so that it reads as one comprehensive strategy. This revision will detail how Coffs Harbour will grow into a Regional City based on the community's aspirations derived from the MyCoffs Community Strategic Plan and additional community engagement events facilitated as part of this review project.

Further information on the progress of this review can be found here.

2. Residential Lands Review

This project comprises a review of land within all residential zones across the Local Government Area. The residential lands review will function as a chapter within the Coffs Harbour Local Growth Management Strategy to facilitate a socially sustainable increase in residential population for the period 2017 to 2036.

Further information on the progress of this review can be found here.

3. Rural Lands Review

This project comprises a review of rural lands across the Local Government Area. Further information on the progress of this review can be found here.

4. Large Lot Residential Lands Review

On 8 February 2018 Council resolved to expedite a review of the land release program and strategy outcomes of large lot residential zoned lands within the LGA. This review is commencing and further information on the progress of this review will be available shortly.
