EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST
PKSLSC has operated continuously since the club’s inception in 1910. The Club has a Service Agreement with Wollongong City Council and Surf Life Saving NSW to provide safe public amenity at Port Kembla beach on select days throughout each swimming season.
The Clubhouse building was constructed by the Surf Club and gifted back to Council in the 1970s. The building is currently maintained by Wollongong City Council.
For the Club to continue to operate efficiently and provide safe public amenity well into the future, the Club’s Executive has started collating a long-term planning strategy that would allow the Club to grow. All growth strategies require financial stability.
To assist the Club in reaching financial stability, we are seeking to investigate the feasibility of leasing out the Clubhouse to a long-term commercial operation through an Expressions of Interest (EOI). We encourage all commercial enterprises to submit an EOI for consideration.
A site inspection of the building and areas of interest will be available for all those who wish to submit an EOI. For further information on the existing building layout, please refer to the floor plans available in the EOI document below.
At the completion of the EOI period, the PKSLSC executive will shortlist candidates to continue through to a Request for Proposal (RFP) based on the selection criteria below.
The EOI period has been extended until the 14th August 2020 due to delays in advertising. If shortlisted, the Club will be in contact with the successful proponents before the end August 2020.
The rules governing submissions are noted on the official Expression of interest documents below.
This page will be the single source of information around the expression of interest. If we receive questions from proponents that we think would hold value to others, we will be posting there questions within the Clarifying Questions button below.
Refer to the Invitation for Expression of Interest and the official Expression of interest documents below.
Note: submissions and queries will only be considered and addressed when sent via the Club's administration email address. Any submission received from other sources will not be conisdered.
