The process to select our preferred contractor for the construction of the new building and renovation of existing surf club buildings continues and an update will be made available when this process is completed.

During July there will be a commercial real-estate marketing campaign managed by Colliers who will have the responsibility to secure suitable tenants for a pre lease agreements for the two commercial spaces available on the ground floor and first floor of the new building. This is an exciting phase of the project and we are sure it will generate a great level of interest and publicity for the club. We are very confident of securing a quality tenant or tenants who will support the club and the delivery of our key functional objectives in combination with running a very successful commercial and community minded business.  

The updated plans are located on the Sutherland Shire DA Tracker website under MA20/0326 and on our website here

We hope to announce more important information and project milestones over the next few months and extend our thanks to our members for their continued support on this once in a generation project for our members and the community.
