Latest Six-Monthly Progress Report (GM Column 7 September 2019)

3 years ago | by

At the most recent Council Meeting, Councillors unanimously adopted the latest Six-Monthly Progress Report for January to June 2019.

Under the Local Government Act, NSW councils are required to report every six months on the progress of the principal activities detailed in the Delivery Program – Council’s four-year plan to work towards the MyCoffs Community Strategic Plan.

Each Six-Monthly Progress Report identifies achievements and challenges recorded during the relevant time period and provides updates on Council services, projects and key operational activities. At Coffs Harbour City Council, we currently report back on a total of 235 actions related to the Delivery Program.

While it is a legislative requirement, the Six-Monthly Progress Report also represents a valuable opportunity for us to review our performance and to inform the local community on what work has been completed or begun.

The latest Report was a good reminder of what has been achieved most recently in delivering positive outcomes for the Coffs Harbour community.

From January to June this year, there were many highlights including:

  • The official opening of the Stage 1 upgrade of the C.ex Coffs International Stadium;
  • The completion of the Upper Shephards Lane Flood Detention Basin;
  • Public consultation on the draft Coffs Harbour Local Growth Management Strategy;
  • Council endorsement of the North Boambee Valley (West) Urban Investigation Area;
  • Construction work on the City Square revitalisation;
  • Commencement of work on the new district park at West Coffs;
  • The staging of the 2019 Coffs Harbour Harmony Festival which attracted 800 people this year;
  • The launch of a new Coffs Coast tourist promotional campaign;
  • The development of the draft Coffs City Centre Development Incentive Policy;
  • The completion of water reservoir refurbishment projects at Toormina, Sapphire and Emerald Beach;
  • The replacement of Morrows Road Bridge at Nana Glen;
  • Extensive water, sewer and transport asset works;
  • The delivery and development of arts, cultural and library services;
  • Delivery of land management, environmental and sustainability initiatives; and
  • Delivery of a range of community, economic and sporting programs.
