THE Cape Paterson Surf Lifesaving Club is in the process of redesigning its out-dated clubhouse, and is seeking public suggestions for the plans.
An open day will be held at the clubhouse in Cape Paterson on Saturday, June 11 when members of the public can share their ideas.
The existing clubhouse, which was built in 1969, needs replacing due to safety concerns with the outer wall, ongoing maintenance costs, and the inability to cater for the modern demands of the club.
The primary purpose is to provide a modern life saving facility, to maintain and improve beach safety and to continue to run sporting, education and community programs.
The new clubhouse design must also have a multipurpose room to be utilised by the community, including schools, emergency services and local clubs, and to address current accessibility and disability requirements.
The design must comply with modern accessibility and disability requirements, and be sympathetic to the coastal setting, using appropriate design and coastal vegetation, be in the same location, and accommodate future membership.
The Cape Paterson Surf Lifesaving open day will be held on Saturday, June 11 from noon until 2pm.
