Coffs Harbour City Council’s Cultural and Civic Space project will provide a lively community, civic and learning hub in the heart of the city centre.
The proposed space includes a visual arts gallery, contemporary library with the latest digital facilities, a museum celebrating the region’s heritage, and civic administration buildings. Subject to approval, the centre is due to open to the community in 2022.
Niche Environment and Heritage has been engaged by engineering consultants GeoLINK to provide specialist heritage assessments during the project initiation phase, prior to construction.
Coffs Harbour-based senior heritage consultant Dr Morgan Disspain, who has in-depth local knowledge, will manage Niche’s highly experienced heritage consulting team as we provide a range of heritage management services including Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Assessments and Historical Heritage Assessments.
Morgan’s observation, as a Coffs Harbour resident, is one that aligns to the Mayor, Cr Denise Knight RN, who recently stated, “The new Cultural and Civic Space is being designed to create a vibrant cultural and civic precinct in the heart of Coffs Harbour to be accessible, inclusive, attractive and welcoming to all.”
