To all Members for your information and feedback. Following discussion at recent Management Committee meetings an application was submitted to the Glamorgan Spring Bay Council for approval to construct a van park on Bicheno Golf Club property. The park would only be available to fully self contained vans in return for the payment of a nightly fee. It is proposed to use the area of land at the southern end of the current car parking area at the rear of the club house. This would involve some clearing of scrub and trees, levelling of the camping spaces, and construction of an access road. A notice of intention was posted at the entrance to the club house car park to allow objections to the proposal to be put forward by the public. Following the required statutory period no objections were received. As a result Council has approved the proposal in principle subject to certain terms and conditions. A copy of this approval is attached for your information. You are invited to submit feedback in writing to the proposal. Should there be sufficient interest from the Members a meeting for general discussion will be called with everyone invited to attend. The reason for the proposal is to give the Club another source of revenue from the nightly fees collected and the opportunity to use the new kitchen facility for casual meals to be offered on certain nights of the week. It could also open up the possibility of offering a stay and play golf package. We look forward to hearing your thoughts/ideas for the proposal. Please send your feedback in writing to The Secretary, Bicheno Golf Club, PO Box 4, Bicheno 7215 or deliver it in person to the Club. Regards Kath Ree Secretary/Treasurer Bicheno Golf Club Inc.
