26 November 2015 Regional Partnerships Key to Sporting Success

​ Positioning Coffs Harbour as a centre for sporting excellence is a step closer after Council adopted recommendations at its meeting on November 26, 2015 to form a regional partnership approach.

 

During consultation stakeholders displayed a huge appetite for a partnership approach to the development of regionally significant facilities within the area. Many of these stakeholders are already working closely together to develop sport within our region.

 

“The opportunity to create partnerships that will generate significant economic and social capital gains on a regional scale is a huge benefit to Coffs Harbour,” Said Nikki Greenwood, Group Leader City Prosperity.

 

“Sports tourism as a whole contributes $30 million to the local economy and stadium events contribute over 60,000 visitor nights having a direct economic impact of over $10 million annually.”

 

Priority has been given to the upgrade of the existing C.ex Coffs International Stadium grandstand and consideration of the investigation of a sports village.
