Sale of Coffs Harbour City Council Buildings
The process for approving the sale of the buildings began on the 14 June 2018, when Council approved the Business Case for the Cultural and Civic Space – a key part of which was to sell the buildings as part of the funding model for the project.
In July 2019 Council authorised the sale of four Council properties as part of the motion to progress the Cultural and Civic Space Project.
The buildings will not be needed once the Cultural and Civic Space is built and the proceeds from the sale of the buildings form an important component of the funding strategy of the new building.
Over the next week, you will see the For Sale signs appearing in front of the four council-owned buildings earmarked for sale:
- Rigby House located at 27-29 Duke Street
- Coffs Harbour City Council Administration Building located at 2 Castle Street
- The building housing the Coffs Harbour Regional Museum located at 251A Harbour Drive
- Office buildings at 169-171 Rose Avenue
UPDATE: At the 14 May meeting, Council requested that a temporary pause be placed on the sale of Rigby House and the Council Administration building, and that a report detailing alternative funding options for the project be brought back to Council. This report is anticipated to be presented in July 2020
