MPs Gurmesh Singh and Melinda Pavey have unveiled a Draft Concept Plan for the future of the Coffs Harbour Jetty Foreshores.
Included is a plan to convert the old Deep Sea Fishing Club site to retirement living and complimentary hospitality facilities.
The marina precinct would be overhauled to include a mix of retail, serviced apartments, residential and function space, plus enhancement of the existing Yacht Club site.
North of Marina Drive – currently car parking – would be transformed to a mix of office and commercial buildings, short-stay accommodation and residential.
