A Review of Building Heights and Built Form in the Coffs Harbour CBD

PLEASE NOTE - The exhibition period for this project has now closed. The outcome of the exhibition will be reported to Council shortly.

Council is undertaking a study to review current development controls on the height and built form of the Coffs Harbour CBD. The term “built form” describes what a building looks like, how tall it is, how much of the lot it takes up, how far it is set back from the street, how many windows/doors it has visible from the street, and its architectural style.

On 7 December 2017 Council resolved to place a draft Review of the Coffs Harbour CBD Height and Built Form Controls on public exhibition until mid February. As such, the study is now in the public exhibition stage, and we are seeking community input to inform Council’s decision-making in advance of any changes being made to the planning controls for the CBD. The public exhibition seeks the input of stakeholders, including businesses and residents. Community input will be important to the finalisation of the recommendations of the study.

This study provides the opportunity for an independent perspective, along with your input, to help shape the future development of the Coffs Harbour CBD. We want to consider the range of issues that might affect planning for the CBD to balance the needs of residents, businesses, visitors and investors.
