Foreshores plan offers five areas for growth

COFFS Harbour acquired the next instalment in the 'War and Peace' saga of Jetty Foreshores planning yesterday.

NSW Minister for Lands Tony Kelly unveiled the Coffs Harbour Jetty Foreshores (Draft) Plan of Management at the Deep Sea Fishing Club, saying the Plan did not go into detail but simply outlined five areas where development could take place.

He ruled out development on Jetty Oval and Englands Park as part of the plan and said no Crown land would be sold and any commercial opportunities within the port precinct would be by way of a lease.

The Draft Plan of Management is now open for community consultation.

It can be seen on the Lands website at and at the Lands office in Marine Parade; at Coffs Harbour City Library, the Visitor Information Centre, the Deep Sea Fishing Club and the Fishermen's Co-op.

The Plan will be on display until April 11 and written submissions are invited during this period.

Mr Kelly also announced $110,000 would be spent on concrete repairs to the fishermen's wharf, where Ray Ellicott Concreting and Cement Rendering Services will replace 80 square metres of concrete and Tropical Asphalts will carry out road resurfacing on the eastbound lane of Marine Parade.
