Dear Members ,
Some very exciting news that I think we should share with our members with regards to our Proposed Club Redevelopment.
I recently met at the Semaphore Surf Life Saving Club with Mayor Angela Keneally of Charles Sturt Council and also Sam Higgins from the Charles Sturt Council who is the Coordinator of Open Space , Planning , Policy & Assets along with the CEO of Surf Life Saving SA, Clare Harris to discuss the proposed redevelopment of our Club.
We have lodged a formal “Planning Application” with the council for a proposed shed to be built on the “Crown Land” and the redevelopment of the Club based on the Concept Plans that have recently been circulating the Club. BothMayor Keneally & Sam agreed in principle that it is a fantastic idea.
After looking through our club upstairs & downstairs and reviewing our Concept Plans both Mayor Keneally & Sam thought that the shed would be a great offsite storage facility and the redevelopment of our club would be supported by the Charles Sturt Council. It is early days but the ball is formally rolling now.
Being a Cat 3 development notifications will be set out to all residents within 60 meters of the development so unless the local rabbit population make a complaint things are looking very promising and the development would be put forward to the February Council meeting for a decision & hopefully a recommendation of endorsement.
We have a lot of hurdles to get over but with the strength & depth of our Club & support from our members we are at a very exciting time for the next chapter in the History of the Semaphore Surf Life Saving Club.
Remember don’t forget that the Breakfast Menu is starting up soon which is another massive step in the direction we need to go in.
(Happy President !!!!)
