Land use strategy on exhibition
IT is one of the city’s great assets and locals can now have a say in its future.
A draft land use strategy and masterplan for government land in the Coffs Harbour Showground precinct is now on public exhibition.
Labor MLC Amanda Fazio said the showground had long been the centrepiece of Coffs Harbour and included the popular Harbour City Holiday Park.
“Other Crown land covered in the strategy includes Rotary Park, the War Memorial Olympic Swimming Pool and Fitzroy Oval, which are
all major public assets,” Ms Fazio said.
“The strategy and master plan is an initiative of the Land and Property Management Authority.
“It seeks to provide a new strategic framework for the future management and development of the showground and neighbouring Crown land while maximising opportunities for public use and enjoyment.”
Ms Fazio said it was important for planning of the showground to be considered alongside the surrounding Crown estate.
“The draft plan embraces the vision of an integrated multi-function city centre open space network based around the showground to be known as Harbour City Central.
“I’m very excited by the concept which will form the basis for an innovative new approach to the future use and development of this significant area of Crown land that will deliver a range of benefits for the people of Coffs Harbour and the wider community of NSW.”
You can see the draft plan at the Coffs Harbour and Grafton offices of the Land and Property Management Authority, Coffs Harbour Showground, Coffs Harbour City Council chambers, and www.lpma. nsw.gov.au.
