Located on the Coffs Harbour coast with direct foreshore access to the Pacific Ocean, the site is considered by locals and visitors as one of the most important public assets within the Coffs Harbour Local Government Area (LGA), with a rich cultural significance both to the local Gumbaynggirr people and in terms of European Colonial heritage.
The precinct holds significant cultural value to local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, including the Gumbaynggirr people, and the precinct contains sites of cultural heritage significance.
Property & Development NSW, lead consultant McGregor Coxall and the Project Steering Advisory Committee (PSAC) are progressing a masterplan for the precinct that will guide a future planning proposal.
Following the recent community consultation program that finished on June 13, Ethos Urban, a leading community engagement specialist, is now analysing the feedback and engagement generated from the survey, in-person events, emails, and letters over the seven week period.
Ethos Urban will be preparing an engagement outcomes report which will be shared with the community in due course.
The outcomes report captures community feedback on the draft Vision, Place Principles and ‘Big Ideas’ proposed for the Coffs Jetty Revitalisation.
Feedback was collected from numerous stakeholder meetings, drop-in sessions and a survey that ran during April and May 2021 seeking to understand the community’s aspirations for the Jetty foreshore area.

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