9 July 2015 New Bid for Jetty4Shores Funding

​​Council is to put in a renewed bid for Commonwealth funding for Stages 2, 3 and 4 of the planned Jetty4Shores upgrades.

“Stage 1 has already made an enormous difference to the appearance and atmosphere of the harbour area,” said Coffs Harbour Mayor, Councillor Denise Knight.

“The new Walkway alone has created a whole new outlook and is clearly going to be a big hit with visitors and locals. The community is right behind the improvements and I hope that the Federal Government will see what a massive boost this revitalisation is bringing to Coffs Harbour and will help us with the funding the city needs.”

Council is applying for the money through Round Two of the Federal Government’s National Stronger Regions Fund (NSRF) grants program. The total project cost is approximately $5.35m, but Council will need to provide half that amount through match funding from reserves.

The five key elements of stages 2, 3 and 4 are a Kiosk Area including steps and paving, the proposed Market/Picnic Area and the Boardwalk, north of the historic Jetty.

Council was unsuccessful in a previous bid for funds for these stages in the first NSRF round.

A separate application for funding is to be put in for a smaller project to provide event facilities at Coffs Coast Sport and Leisure Park.

The project includes the construction of an asphalt surface, and the upgrade of an asphalt area that is to be built for the next Coates Hire Rally Australia event later this year, on the east side of C.ex Coffs International Stadium along part of Phil Hawthorne Drive. These precincts can be used as additional car parking space and as the site for temporary event structures such as team tents, ice bath recovery tents or toilet trucks.

The second part of the proposed works involves the construction of a bus and taxi stop on Stadium Drive adjacent to the car park at the southern end of the Stadium.

The total cost of the works is approximately $500,000 with $250,000 being sought from the NSRF program.

Announcement of successful Round 2 projects is expected in December 2015.
