REVEALED: The Coffs Coast's most violent streets

IN one year, 403 non-domestic assaults took place on the Coffs Coast.

The previous year ending March 2018 saw more than 500, and it's the Coffs Harbour City Centre that has been the scene for a majority of the violence.

That's according to the latest figures and crime maps released from the Bureau of Crime Research and Statistics, which reveals just where along the Coffs Coast are hotspots for the crimes.

Coffs Harbour's rate has remained stable over recent years, but is currently above the state average.

Bellingen Shire saw 30 non-domestic assaults take place in the year to March 2019, with a rate below the state average.

Streets in areas including the CBD, Park Beach, West Coffs, South Coffs, Toormina and Woolgoolga have all been identified as being 'hotspots' for the assaults.

Remaining areas, including the Northern Beaches, Sawtell, Urunga and Bellingen experienced no significant rate of the crime.

According to BOCSAR, it should be taken into account that the Coffs Coast is a tourist destination and crime rates can be affected by the transient population.

Below is the full list of 'hotspot' streets for non-domestic assaults in the year to March 2019.
