Consultation has concluded. Thank you to everyone who provided feedback.

Public Exhibition closed Friday 26 May 2023.

The Woolgoogla community was invited to review and provide feedback on the draft Woolgoogla Movement and Place Plan from 27 March to Friday 26 May 2023. We are currently reviewing community feedback and will report to Council in the near future.

Purpose of the draft Plan

Welcome to our community consultation page for new planning controls and a transport plan for Woolgoolga.

Our aim is to facilitate additional housing and economic growth while maintaining the village atmosphere within Woolgoolga. The planning controls will provide a higher standard of design excellence for the town centre and new growth areas of Woolgoolga North West and Woolgoolga West. The Woolgoolga Movement and Place Plan will help create a transport system that offers more choice to the community for moving around, and improves the amenity of Woolgoolga.

This package is the latest stage of the implementation of the Woolgoolga Town Centre Masterplan and the Coffs Harbour Local Growth Management Strategy 2020.

What are the Planning Controls? 

The draft planning controls include:

  • new planning controls for the town centre to align with the vision and goals of the Woolgoolga Town Centre Masterplan;
  • new planning controls for the residential release areas of Woolgoolga North West;

  • amended planning controls for the Woolgoolga West release area (West Woolgoolga);

  • proposal to remove floor space ratio controls within the three business areas in the Woolgoolga Town Centre;

  • Contributions Plans to help deliver priority actions from the Woolgoolga Movement and Place Plan, and critical infrastructure for development of the Woolgoolga North West and Woolgoolga West Release Areas. These areas are earmarked for around 1,130 homes in 3 large precincts - Newmans Road, Barkhut Road and Tramway Drive.

The Woolgoolga Movement and Place Plan provides a long-term plan for improving transport options and road and street networks in Woolgoolga. The plan stems from the adopted Woolgoolga Town Centre Masterplan and addresses:

The Plan also details streetscape improvements to the main streets around the beach side town centre.

We invited the community to provide feedback to help us refine the plans and the priorities for the next 10 years.
