Year of business & development

THE holidays have been a busy one for the Coffs Coast and our local accommodation properties advised they have solid summer holiday bookings across the region. We certainly remain a popular destination for families and it's great to see so many holiday makers on the Coffs Coast.

2019 is going to be a big year for major local development and growth for Coffs Harbour.  We will see the:

  •  
  •  
  • Upgrade to the C.ex Coffs International Stadium expected to be completed. This includes two new grandstands; an annex building and the refurbishment of the existing grandstand. The new stadium will offer seating for nearly 3,000 people
  • South Coffs Service Centre will open - the construction began on the $15 million centre in late June of 2018.
  • SCU Allied Health Building under construction.
  • Coffs Harbour Base Hospital expansion worth $194 million dollars will begin this year; this will include a new emergency department; operating theatres; a short stay surgical unit; and an expansion to facilities for ambulatory care and community health services
  • Plans for the Jetty Foreshore development are currently out to market for commercial interest; once these have been received they will be put out for public consultation before construction begins

It's pleasing to see developers having a strong interest in Coffs Harbour; we live in a growing city and to become "The Best Regional City" we need development, infrastructure and the vision to build the future of our city.
