Community Engagement Report

available now

What's happening now?

We exhibited the proposed alterations and extensions to the North Narrabeen Surf Life Saving Club between Monday 27 March and Sunday 30 April 2023.

We received 77 submissions from our community which included support and offered suggestions for changes. There were some submissions that did not support elements of the alterations and in most instances offered alternatives for consideration.

Our Community Engagement Report is now available and includes all submissions, specific questions raised and our responses. We will be taking the communities feedback and suggestions into the design stage.

The immediate next step will be to prepare and lodge the Development Application.

What was proposed?

North Narrabeen Surf Life Saving Club (NNSLSC) has been home to life savers since 1912 and the North Narrabeen Boardriders Club (NNBC) since 1964.

The existing clubhouse was built in two stages, with the final stage opened in 1983. The proposed upgrade works comprise a minor extension to provide a suitable meeting space for the NNBC and other building improvements that include alterations to:

  • improve accessibility
  • provide upgraded facilities - including an enclosed space on the first floor deck
  • fix waterproofing of the first floor deck, and
  • provide a general upgrade to the building to improve community and member use of the space.

The proposed works are planned to be carried out in three (3) stages:

  • Stage 1 – Boardriders room, BBQ area renewal and associated landscaping works (GF) and slab extension (L1).
  • Stage 2 – Internal refurbishment with new ceiling, lighting, flooring (L1).
  • Stage 3 – Decking renewal and waterproofing works, new enclosed space, balustrades and cladding (L1).

The concept plans for each stage can be viewed below and you can find out more in the 'Further information' section on this page.

How the community was involved

We asked the community to review the proposed concept plans and have their say by completing a submission form, emailing or writing to us. We sent letters to local residents and met with the community at two onsite pop-ups on Thursday 20 April and Saturday 22 April.

All feedback was carefully considered in the Community Engagement Report and may assist the design development phase of the works.
