Council Moves to Sell Terrigal Bowling Club Land

We thank Freddy Dowse for giving us this alert.

 It seems there is no end to the debacle that is the Central Coast Council’s mismanagement of finances and the subsequent poor communication skills they are quickly becoming well known for.

This came to a head last week for Terrigal Bowling Club when they discovered, by pure chance, that the land on which the 70-year-old Club sits is recommended to be reclassified on Tuesday, 27 April in order to sell.

Not content with simply increasing rates to bail themselves out of the financial hole they dug over several years, Council now wishes to reduce our ability to socialise, keep active and enjoy where we live, and they wish to do it in absolute secrecy. 

Terrigal Bowling Club CEO, James Heddo said he was appalled by the Council’s lack of transparency when they have tried to make contact on numerous occasions.

“The Club currently holds a lease until 30 April 2024 but the future after this point appears non-existent in the eyes of the Council,” he said.

“Council had previously suggested that the Club could be relocated to the recreational grounds where Breakers Basketball Courts are situated. However, having viewed the ‘Tranche 3 – Land Requiring Reclassification and Rezoning’ document, it seems this land in Terrigal is also on the agenda to be sold. 

“I am incredibly disappointed that we didn’t receive any communication that this proposal to reclassify the land was part of the Council agenda. It would be devasting to the entire local community if 70 years of proud history could be thrown away due to the financial mismanagement of local government.

“As you can imagine we have many upset members at the club and I myself am outraged that Council thought this was acceptable behaviour. We are determined though to fight this for our members and community,” James concluded.

Terrigal Bowling Club has a long and storied association with its community and we now encourage the community to stand with us and fight for our much-loved club.

We thank Freddy for this alert.   All Bowling Clubs with council land may be in the same boat. Change.org is a legitimate organisation based in Delaware.    It does ask for $7, but you can sign the partition without paying the $7.  Suggest that you don't provide your bank details.

Adam Crouch, Member for Terrigal, visited the Terrigal Bowling Club on Tuesday 6th April to congratulate the men’s and ladies’ bowlers on their successful application for grants through the NSW Local Sports Grant Program.  Adam handed over a cheque for $4,000 to support the club’s ongoing commitment to providing opportunities to both junior and adult bowlers, especially those adults with restricted or limited mobility issues. Adam was told that Terrigal Bowling Club hoped to encourage all groups to take up the sport and aimed to assist those that already play to continue playing bowls for much longer.

The Terrigal Bowling Club team of coaches includes coaches with qualifications or experience to assist junior, new and aspiring bowlers, wheelchair bowlers, bowlers with impaired vision and bowlers with limited mobility problems. All coaches are accredited with Bowls Australia and have satisfactorily passed the NSW Working With Children Checks.
