After several years in planning and design Forster Surf Life Saving Club has obtained development consent.
The existing building does not cater for the current membership numbers and, due to the harsh climate to which it is exposed, has reached a state of disrepair. The new design will involve the redevelopment of the upper level of the existing club to make the space more functional and able to more adequately accommodate the community. A new entry will define the arrival of volunteers and community members from Beach Street whilst providing passive surveillance of the esplanade and car park.
The alterations and additions improve the amenity of club spaces whilst still providing valuable, usable external areas for the community. Other works include the immediate surrounding landscape and small-scale infrastructure comprised of public seating, showers, bike racks and beach access paths.
This project would not have been possible without the efforts of the Great Lakes Shire Council, Roger G Veness Chartered Consulting Engineers and the generous members of Forster Surf Life Saving Club for their many hours of voluntary service.
