Plans for a $2.7 million redevelopment of the Albany Surf Life Saving Club clubhouse have been submitted to the City of Albany for approval. The surf club, established in 1917, on Middleton Beach in Albany, offers much-needed lifesaving, first aid, emergency response, education and training, and intergenerational sport and recreation on the WA south coast.
An internal ASLSC review found that to meet current and future community capacity and demand, a proposed clubhouse expansion was required to significantly improve the safety, efficiency and capacity of the service through new training and education spaces.
The expansion plan, part of Middleton Beach Foreshore Enhancement project, will improve beach access and amenities led by the City of Albany and with financial support from the Australian Government Building Better Regions Funding, Development WA (LandCorp), Sport and Cultural Industries, Lotterywest, the City of Albany and Jack Family Trust.
A tender process was also conducted for the design with local architects H+H Architects successful in winning the tender. The City of Albany Major Projects Team has been appointed project managers.
The club hopes to complete the work by early 2024.
