Bronte Surf Club and community facilities upgrade

Waverley Council in partnership with Bronte Surf Life Saving Club (SLSC) has announced it will embark on a proposed $9 million redevelopment of the surf club and community facilities building.

The proposed redevelopment will see the existing structure demolished to make way for a new and sustainable building that will meet the needs of contemporary surf life saving and the wider community.

The building is no longer fit for purpose and must be rebuilt to meet the needs of contemporary surf lifesaving and the community including;

  • Balance of female to male facilities
  • Compliance for family change rooms, accessible amenities
  • Adequate facilities to train over 200 lifesavers per year and teach young nippers (currently almost 800)
  • Fit-for-purpose lifeguard and lifesaving facilities including adequate storage and training spaces

The proposed redevelopment of Bronte SLSC will see the existing structure demolished and a new building constructed encompassing:

  • lifeguard facilities with change rooms, first aid , and lifeguard tower (to align with Surf Lifesaving Australia requirements and recommendations).
  • public amenities
  • council staff amenities and storage
  • patrol first aid area
  • administrative offices
  • change rooms and amenities
  • kiosk, gymnasium and function room including a bar with a commercial kitchen
  • training and meeting rooms

The promenade will also be upgraded

The goal is to start construction mid-2020. Building and landscaping is expected to be completed by October 2021.
