Update – Clubhouse Redevelopment & Remediation Project
February 26, 2019 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
The proposed commencement date for remediation and renovation of the clubhouse is awaiting a determination from Woollahra Municipal Council (WMC) regarding our submission. For the past nine months, we have been seeking to modify the Development Approval with regard to our future operating hours, as the conditions attached to this approval are unacceptable.
We hope to be able to report back on this issue shortly, but in the meantime, your Committee has continued to work diligently on the project. Following a competitive fixed-price tender process managed by Align Consulting Solutions, a builder has been selected to potentially commence works this winter, with completion in time for next summer.
In addition to WMC’s pending decision, the greatest challenge to commencing the project this year is funding. To date, we have raised over $600,000 in donations, primarily through the Australian Sports Commission’s tax-deductible program, from a relatively small number of generous members. This still leaves a significant shortfall if we are to complete all aspects of the remediation and renovation based on the quote received from our selected builder.
To update members on the status of the project, the Committee has scheduled an information evening on Tuesday 26th February at 7:00pm upstairs at the clubhouse.
We encourage all members to attend the briefing. This project remains essential to the long-term future of your Club by providing a well overdue remediation and renovation of the current facilities.
