Development Application

Submissions closed

Development Application stage

The submission period for DA2020/0021 is now closed.

This project has now progressed to the Development Application stage.

We're exhibiting the Development Application (DA2020/0021) for the demolition of the existing surf club building and public amenities, and construction of a new surf club building, public amenities, café and community storage.

More information is available on our website. If you have any enquiries, please contact Lashta Haidari, Planner on 1300 434 434

Development Application notification period: Saturday 25 January until 15 February 2020.


Over the past decade we have worked with Long Reef Surf Life Saving Club and the community to renew the club building. To date, none of the previous proposals were accepted by all parties, and as such this project aims to develop a suitable solution for all.
