Community Consultation

Property and Development NSW (PDNSW) is continuing with the development of a community-led master plan for the revitalisation and activation of the Coffs Harbour Jetty Foreshore Precinct.

This is an opportunity to create a vibrant and thriving foreshore precinct for the whole community to enjoy, while maintaining the cultural and existing qualities of the local area that we all know and love.

In 2018, PDNSW (then named Property NSW) worked with the Coffs Harbour community to understand the community’s values and viewpoints to inform the development of a Draft Concept Plan for the precinct. Over the coming twelve months, PDNSW will build upon previous work undertaken on the project, and continue to work with the community to prepare a new master plan for the precinct that will guide a future planning proposal.

Together, with community-led ideas, the master planning process will build upon the unique character of the precinct, to create a place for all people to enjoy, now and in the future.

Phase 1 Consultation: Vision & Place Principles

Please note that Phase 1 Consultation has now closed.

During April & May 2021, PDNSW worked with the community to develop a shared vision and principles, that will guide the future activation and revitalisation of the precinct.

Traditional owners, residents, businesses, community groups, visitors and the broader community provided their feedback at several local pop-up events, briefing sessions and via the online survey over the 6 week consultation period. An outcomes report from this period is currently being developed and will be published online when complete.

Over the next twelve months, PDNSW will continue to work with the community to prepare a new master plan for the precinct that will guide a future planning proposal.

PDNSW will continue to work closely with the Project Steering Advisory Committee (PSAC) and will consult with the wider community in late-2021 for Phase 2 Consultation: Prioritise Master Plan.

Our role

The Property & Development NSW (PDNSW) team is responsible for the management and delivery of large- scale or complex real estate projects and transactions.

What is proposed?

PDNSW will oversee and manage the master planning process for the revitalisation and activation of the Coffs Harbour Jetty Foreshore Precinct.

This is an opportunity to create a vibrant and thriving foreshore precinct that is enhanced and activated for the benefit of the community, while maintaining the cultural and existing qualities of the local area.

This includes improving the connection between the Coffs Harbour CBD and waterfront, providing additional housing and delivering improvements to the public domain, while stimulating job growth and economic activity.

As part of the broader integrated precinct revitalisation, the Coffs Harbour regional boat ramp and travel lift will also be upgraded. Transport for NSW will be leading these two components.

This project is focused on activating the precinct through the delivery of social and community infrastructure to be funded by revenue generated from development activity within the precinct.

Working together

PDNSW are working collaboratively with:

  • Project Steering Advisory Committee
  • Coffs Harbour community
  • Coffs Harbour City Council
  • Coffs Harbour District Local Aboriginal Land Council
  • Transport for NSW
  • Crown Lands
  • Department of Regional NSW
Current status

PDNSW has been working closely with lead consultant McGregor Coxall and the PSAC to develop a proposed vision for the Coffs Harbour Jetty Foreshore Precinct.

In early 2021, PDNSW worked closely with lead consultant McGregor Coxall and the PSAC to develop a draft vision and principles for the precinct.

During April and May 2021, the wider community provided their feedback on the draft vision and principles through an extensive community consultation process. Once finalised, the vision and principles, along with previous feedback collected from the community in relation to the project, will inform a master plan for the precinct that will guide a future planning proposal.

In demonstrating its commitment to revitalise and activate the precinct for the community, the NSW Government has committed an initial $20 million to commence work on the precinct. $5 million has been allocated to the development of a new community building on the site of the TS Vendetta Building.  Following an expression of interest campaign for regional emerging architects, a competitive design pitch process is underway. Pending approvals, construction works are planned to commence mid-late 2021.

A further $15 million has been allocated to the design and construction of essential services to modernise and increase the capacity of water, power, sewer, telecommunications and gas infrastructure within the precinct. Pending approvals, construction works for the delivery of essential infrastructure is planned to commence from mid-2021.
