Local Strategic Planning Statement

The Local Strategic Planning Statement ('the Statement') provides a 20-year land use planning vision for the Coffs Harbour Local Government Area (LGA). It identifies 16 Planning Priorities to be delivered in four themes to 2040.

Coffs Harbour City Council adopted the Statement on 25 June 2020 for the whole of the Coffs Harbour LGA. The Statement was prepared in accordance with the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 and Regulations.

Now it is adopted, this Statement will inform several Council processes and procedures, including:

  • the roll out of strategic and city-shaping projects within operational and delivery plans
  • infrastructure priorities
  • advocacy with other levels of government for new infrastructure and services to support growth
  • preparation of place plans, and
  • amendments to local planning controls (Local Environmental Plan and Development Control Plan).

The Local Strategic Planning Statement is underpinned by the four key themes of the MyCoffs Community Strategic Plan, being:

  • Community Wellbeing
  • Community Prosperity
  • A Place for Community, and
  • Sustainable Community Leadership.
