Cr and Deputy Mayor Sally Townley

The Coffs Harbour Local Government Area is not divided into wards. You are welcome to contact any of our Councillors, regardless of where you live within the LGA.

Coffs Harbour City Councillor Sally Townley

I am an environmental scientist by training,  completing a degree in Coastal Management and later a PhD in Wildlife Ecology. 

I first moved to Coffs from Armidale in 2000 to work with National Parks. In 2006, I started with Coffs Council as a Biodiversity Officer.  In 2009, I left Council to work as an ecological consultant on the Pacific Highway upgrade, only to return as a Councillor in 2012. 

My daughters were aged one and two when I came to Coffs. They completed all their schooling here and now are both at university in Melbourne. 

My husband Dave and I run a bakery business with shops in Bellingen and Sawtell.

I also run the Coffs Coast Community Circus and have enjoyed teaching circus skills and gymnastics to Coffs kids for the past 15 years.
