Sport a pillar in Coffs Harbour’s future growth

April 23rd, 2021

Sport is included as one of the five pillars in Coffs Harbour’s future growth.

The Mayor of Coffs Harbour, Denise Knight, today endorsed the State Government’s Regional City Action Plan which, in part, is aimed at distinguishing Coffs Harbour as a centre of sporting excellence.

The plan requires government to consider the changing needs of sport and the community. It also commits government to new lighting, signage and amenities.

Notably, the plan commits Coffs Harbour City Council and the NSW Government to collaborating on the delivery of a regional sports hub at South Coffs Harbour for both community and elite activities.

The plan also urges government to explore opportunities for group and tourist accommodation in South Coffs Harbour to support the regional sporting hub.

The regional sports hub at South Coffs Harbour is one of seven targeted outcomes in the plan. Other outcomes include the redevelopment of the city centre, more opportunities for business and support for the local arts, cultural and creative communities.

“This is a historic plan, the first of its kind for Coffs Harbour,” Mayor Denise Knight said at today’s community reception.

“It gives the city a footing for the future,” she said.

Coffs Harbour City Councillors and Council endorse the plan authored by the State Government.

“Sport is synonymous with Coffs Harbour, and we’re pleased that this plan addresses both the big issues and the more local grassroots issues,” North Coast Football General Manager Andrew Woodward said.

“The regional sports hub in South Coffs Harbour will be a one-stop-shop for local and sports development and events.

“Promised improvements to lighting, amenities, and signage will also make the game better for existing participants and help attract many new people,” Mr Woodward said.

ENDS
