Why invest?

Coffs Harbour's great climate and strategic position between two major capital cities on Australia's east coast have seen the City grow into an important regional hub for business and government.

Coffs Harbour City Council is committed to helping grow sustainable industries and businesses throughout the local government area. The region's strong economic and population growth, along with Coffs Harbour City Council's forward thinking approach to strategic planning and environmental management, make it one of the fastest growing and most dynamic areas within NSW.

A new vision for Coffs Harbour

The Coffs Harbour Regional City Action Plan (RCAP) has been developed by the NSW Government, in collaboration with Coffs Harbour City Council, to help Coffs Harbour fulfil its potential as a thriving regional centre.

Coffs Harbour city’s population has been experiencing high growth in recent years.  The RCAP will provide the structure to manage and shape the city’s growth over the next 20 years, making it an even more attractive place for tree changers and city dwellers wanting a lifestyle change while retaining the benefits of city living.

Council has ensured that the city has everything that it needs to grow and be sustainable - such as a state of the art Regional Water Supply Scheme, Water Filtration Plant, High-tech Waste Management System, National Broadband Network, university level education, regional airport and a strong health care sector.

We invite you or a representative of your organisation to meet with Council to discuss the plan and possible investment opportunities by contacting the team on on 02 6648 4835 or email.

Identified Opportunities

The economic diversity of Coffs Harbour underpins its continued growth – with industries such as health care, retail trade, accommodation, food services, construction and education at the forefront of the economic mix.  Agriculture, education and digital business are strengthening industries offering growth opportunities.  The shift towards a digitally connected economy is revolutionising many industries and opening doors to new opportunities in national and international arenas.

Coffs Harbour offers a solid foundation for innovation and startups with the established support provided through 6 degrees.  For startups there are many advantages to being located regionally, especially on the Coffs Coast.  Your runway to growth can be extended due to the affordability of doing business in Coffs - affordable housing, low cost co-working spaces, free parking everywhere, NBN connectivity and no more than 15-minute commute to anywhere.

There are many opportunities for a variety of business types to relocate.  These are created from demand, through population growth such as for trade services, or for affordability to operate and then deliver to external areas.

Coffs Harbour is one of NSW’s busiest regional passenger airports and as such related industries are expanding into this new territory.   Commercial land is now available at Coffs Harbour Airport’s new Enterprise Park. The Coffs Harbour Airport Enterprise Park offers high quality, cost effective and convenient business locations in Coffs Harbour. With over 23 hectares of commercial land on offer, and its close proximity to the CBD and neighbouring Coffs Harbour Airport, it is an ideal location for all business types and sizes.
