City Square in the heart of Coffs Harbour is set to undergo a ‘mini-makeover’ in time for Easter break with the aim of offering tourists a preview of the future of the CBD after its $2m transformation.

The Coffs Harbour City Centre Masterplan 2031, which was adopted in 2013, is seeing a number of developments take place such as the recent installations of shade sails.

“Planning is well underway for City Square to undergo a major $2m transformation as part of the joint community, Council and business push to make it a key regional destination, ” said Mick Raby, Council’s Director Sustainable Infrastructure.

“The significant upgrade of City Square is still a little way off, but as a start we want to make sure that the precinct is looking its best and to give people a flavour of the kind of shopping and dining experience they can expect in the future.”
