This is the background paper to Coffs Harbour City Council’s Vision 2030. It outlines community concerns and aspirations for the future of Coffs Harbour.
Of particular note, Table 3 (page 11) shows that the three most important planning issues for the community are:
- Preservation of forests, beaches, wildlife, water, rivers, marine (incl increasing awareness and values)
- Sustainable urban design/sustainable housing (incl. spaces for people, street trees etc)
- Sense of community/friendly/safe place, inclusive, caring, connected
Arguably, the proposal for the building of a service station and fast food drive-thru contradicts each of those desired outcomes.
