In great news for Forster, work towards a new Surf Life Saving Club building is progressing, with demolition of the old club house to begin from Monday 28 November.
“A new surf club building was part of the Forster Main Beach Precinct Masterplan prepared in 2018,” said MidCoast Council’s Executive Manager Community Spaces, Dan Aldridge.
“The Masterplan, which was the result of extensive community consultation, proposed to revitalise the area for the benefit of the community and its visitors into the future.”
Contractors will begin preparations for demolition on Monday 28 November, with safety fencing erected around the site.
The demolition will take approximately two weeks to complete. During that time, please cooperate with directions from construction crew and signage, and remain well away from the site.
The adjoining amenities block and café will be open during demolition. Patrons may be inconvenienced by construction noise on occasions. Measures will be put in place to reduce any negative impact.
MidCoast Council has approved the construction of a shed which the surf club will use for storage during construction of the new building.
The preferred contractor has been working with the architect to finalise the design of the new building.
