  • Working group appointed

    over 1 year ago

    The next phase of community consultation is currently underway following the recent appointment community members to the Mona Vale Surf Life Saving Club Working Group.

    We received a total of 19 working group nominations, from which 11 members were appointed to represent the following segments of the community:

    • Mona Vale SLSC Exec Committee
    • Board Riders Group
    • Resident Group/ Local Business
    • Local Residents
    • Surf Life Saving Sydney Northern Beaches
    • Key user/hirer
    • Bronze Café

    The first working group meeting was held on Thursday 20 July 2017 and was attended by working group members, project staff and the appointed design consultant.

    The direction and discussions from the meeting will provide ongoing information needed to assist the appointed architectural consultant in developing a concept design that meets the needs of the club, community and fits with the ‘sense of place’.

    Once initial concept plans have been developed, in consultation with the working group, Council will look to carry out the second stage of community engagement.
