Coffs Harbour City Council. Coffs Harbour Health Campus Local Environmental Plan (LES) -I was the project manager and planner involved in the LES for the Health Campus and Sporting precinct in south Coffs Harbour. The aim of this study was to determine future needs for community, health and recreational land and appropriately zone the remaining land for these purposes. The land was considerably constrained by remnant vegetation, riparian areas, archaeological sites, threatened species, flood prone land and bushfire buffer areas. The final recommendations rationalised existing land use zones and provided guidelines for future management of the area.

This involved a working partnership with Hassall and Associates, Agricultural Economists who provided the necessary inputs to determine the needs of the agricultural sector in the Inverell LGA. Following this, Keiley worked with Council, the community, Government Agencies and other stakeholders to determine the appropriate minimum rural allotment size for rural zoned land within the shire. Recommendations were made as to the future management of concessional lots, rural dual occupancies and dwelling entitlements. The final report included mapped areas of varying minimum lot size recommendations that informed the new LEP.
