STAGE one of Coffs Harbour's new Men's Shed is under way, with a slab ready to be poured.

The Men's Shed is a meeting place for men of all ages and is a powerful tool in addressing men's mental health and well being.

"The Men's Shed provides an important service and council are pleased to be able to provide them with support," Cr Knight said.

"This is the first stage of creating a bigger and better home for the Men's Shed, so they can expand the support they provide to the community."

When completed, the new shed will provide a wider range of activities as well as a show room for open days, car parking, office space, barbecue facilities and a communal area.

The next stage of construction has been funded under Coffs Harbour City Council's Community Capital Infrastructure Grants, and works will secure the foundations, provide a concrete slab and the purchasing of some building materials.

The council are also providing the Men's Shed's new site, located at the former Council Water Treatment Plant, as well as project management and construction services.
