VISION 2030 has been adopted by Coffs Harbour City Council as the guiding document for all future planning decisions on economic growth, transport, housing, lifestyle and the environment.
The Draft Vision 2030 was drawn up after consultation activities involving some 700 people, was exhibited over summer and attracted seven submissions.
Five key outcomes form the basis of the Vision. These were that by 2030: We are a prosperous and learning community; our built environment connects us and supports us in living sustainably; we are moving around easily, safely and sustainably; our communities are healthy, informed and engaged; and our natural environment is protected and conserved for future generations.
The next stage of a Draft Coffs Harbour 2030 Plan will be a series of forums with young people, business groups and government agencies, followed by a Coffs Harbour 2030 Summit on May 2 at Southern Cross University from 9am until 2pm.
Council is inviting expressions of interest from individuals, community groups, businesses and others who wish to attend.
