The Sandy Beach Reserve Masterplan was developed in consultation with the local community.The Reserve forms part of the Coffs Coast Regional Park. Masterplan projects are implemented as funding becomes available.

Sandy Beach Reserve forms part of the Coffs Coast Regional Park, which is managed by the National Parks and Wildlife Service and Coffs Harbour City Council, under the guidance of the Coffs Coast Regional Park Trust Board.

The Trust Board, appointed by the NSW Environment Minister, includes Aboriginal Elders and other community representatives. For more information on the Coffs Coast Regional Park, please refer to the Important Links section of this web page.

Sandy Beach Reserve Masterplan was developed in partnership with the local community, through a series of workshops and through online consultations.

Masterplan projects have been prioritised by the community and they are implemented as funding becomes available.

Works completed already include installation of new bollards along part of the Reserve and construction of a viewing deck at the southern end of the beach.

The next stages of works include a shared footpath/cycleway. Council and NPWS have recently worked with the community to detail the location of the pathway, extending from the northern end of the reserve to the viewing platform at the southern end. Works have now started on this Stage 1 of this project, extending from the middle car park to the southern car park, boat ramp and viewing deck.

Plans for a Youth Space for 8-15 year olds at Sandy Beach Reserve are a step closer following the announcement that the NSW Government is providing $150,000 funding towards the $300,000 cost of the project.

A further $150,000 in funding for the Youth Space is to be provided by the Coffs Coast Regional Park.

The concept plan for the Youth Space currently includes a small skate plaza, a half basketball court, seating, shelter, connecting footpaths and shade tree planting.

The Youth Space will form part of a larger Community Hub which will include the Youth Space, a Junior Play Space for 1-10 year olds, exercise stations, barbecues, a passive picnic and park area, carparking, shade sails, dunal revegetation, lighting, a shower, bubbler and toilets. These elements will be sensitively incorporated into the parkland to retain the natural beauty of the foreshore location.

Youth and the wider Sandy Beach community will again be consulted to develop detailed designs. Consultations are expected to take place later this year, with respect to social distancing requirements.
