Coffs Harbour Local Growth Management Strategy

Coffs Harbour City Council is currently revising and updating its Local Growth Management Strategy (LGMS) for the Coffs Harbour Local Government Area (LGA). This will allow Council 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 2040 and beyond.

The revised LGMS consists of nine chapters. Seven chapters have been completed and endorsed by NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment, and two chapters are yet to be finalised.

Individual chapters of this document are as follows:

Work being undertaken on the uncompleted chapters can be viewed here:

*It should be noted that until Chapter 8 is completed, the following documents are still in force for Employment Lands of the LGA:

The revised Coffs Harbour Local Growth Management Strategy 2020 replaces Council's previous LGMS, known as the Our Living City Settlement Strategy (which is now superceded).

Chapters under public exhibition can be found on Council's Have Your Say page.
