Draft masterplan refined
Imagine the possibilities. Explore the opportunities. The refined masterplan sets out the ambition and opportunity for the future of the Jetty Foreshore.
We have incorporated the community’s feedback from the 7-week community consultation program and further refined the draft masterplan with an even greater focus on open space, support for local businesses, and tourism opportunities.

The refined masterplan will:
- commit a significant proportion of the currently fenced off rail lands to public open space and additional car parking
- reallocate proposed formal car parking in the North Park area to sit along the railway line delivering more useable and connected public open space
- create three regional tourism zones across the Jetty Foreshore – The Marina Precinct / Jetty Hub (including accommodation and regional playground) / Former Deep Sea Fishing Club
- refine the combination of land uses to ensure the Jetty Foreshore is a mixed, vibrant and safe precinct across the week and the year
- increase and improve car parking along the entire length of the Jetty Foreshore
- deliver a regional playground set in the existing natural landscape and featuring adventure and water play components
- provide design guidelines and introduce a design review process to ensure that all future development adheres to the intent of the Jetty Foreshores Master Plan.
New community building
The government completed work and delivered a new waterfront community building in the Coffs Harbour Jetty Foreshore Precinct.
As always intended, the community hub was transferred to the Crown land manager, the City of Coffs Harbour, on 23 August 2023, to manage on behalf of the community.
Delivery of this hub for community is the first step in the government’s plans to revitalise the precinct of a thriving regional city that puts people at its heart.
The hub provides support for local businesses, residents and visitors, with indoor and outdoor café-style dining, a greater focus on open space, landscaping designed to preserve the area’s unique biodiversity, and new public amenities.
The hub will support ongoing economic, cultural and community benefits for many years to come.
Regional architects King + Campbell designed the building, with representation of the area’s Aboriginal, environmental and maritime roots.
Adjacent to the community hub, a new purpose-built space, housing the reinstalled South Solitary Island Lighthouse Optic (SSILO), was unveiled May 2023. The SSILO, manufactured in 1860, is a celebration of the region’s rich maritime history, providing vibrancy for the local community, and a new visitor and tourism drawcard.
