MyCoffs Community Strategic Plan

MyCoffs Community Strategic Plan

​​​​​​Through the MyCoffs Community Strategic Plan campaign, the Coffs Harbour community has collaborated to develop a vision and strategic plan to help take our local government area into the future.

The Community Strategic Plan (CSP) is prepared by a Council on behalf of its community. In responding to Council’s Community Engagement Strategy, thousands of local residents were directly involved in the development of the MyCoffs Plan, sharing their aspirations and hopes, and prioritising our community objectives.

Under the MyCoffs Community Vision of “connected, sustainable, thriving”, the plan sets out goals and priorities for the city over the next ten years and beyond. It centres around four themes: Community Wellbeing, Community Prosperity, A Place for Community and Sustainable Community Leadership.

MyCoffs Communi​​​ty Strategic Plan 

The CSP is intended to represent the main priorities and aspirations of our community and is not intended to cover only Council services and facilities. Other stakeholders need to contribute to deliver the long-term objectives of the CSP – for instance business, community groups and other tiers of government.

The Community Strategic Plan is the over-arching document in Council’s Integrated Planning and Reporting (IP&R) framework. The local community developed its original CSP in 2009. As a fast-growing regional city, it was considered appropriate to re-engage with the community to identify its strategic objectives and priorities following the 2016 local government elections. The MyCoffs Community Strategic Plan will be reviewed in 2021/22.
