Planning Application - Seacliff Road

Club Noticeboard
25/11/2019

Objection to Planning Application

The Rear Commodore would like to draw the attention of Members to the lodgement by King’s Fellowship of an Amended Planning Application for their site at the junction of Seacliff Road and Ward Avenue.  Unfortunately very little has changed from their original proposal to make it anything like appropriate and acceptable not just for the Club but also for the area as a whole.

Members who sent in letters of objection to the original Application may be assuming that their objection is automatically carried forward and will apply to the Amended Application.  Unfortunately that is not the case and it is necessary to send in a further letter of objection to the Applicant’s new proposal even though little has changed.  It is also open to Members who may not have objected to the original Application to now do so in relation to the Amended Application and they are encouraged to make the effort and do this.  The more objections that are submitted then the greater are the prospects of preventing this completely inappropriate development for the area.  Click Here for suggested content of objection letters

Snippets from Club History - 1919

Club Noticeboard
23/1/2019

A few snippets gleaned from Ed Wheeler's Pictorial History of the Club.

1919 - The Club was attempting to resume a semblance of pre-war activities.  The Minutes show good co-operation with the Ballyholme Sailing Club (not yet Ballyholme Yacht Club) in the matter of starting guns, co-ordination of fixtures etc.  This is Ballyholme YC's Centenary Year - long may the good co-operation contiunue!
