Update regarding club's storage cabin.

Some of our members may have seen the planning decision concerning our outbuilding in the Lymington Times recently and wondered what it is all about. Nearly six years ago the club purchased a metal portable unit to serve as extra storage and administrative accommodation.
Temporary planning permission for five years was given by the New Forest District Council, which expired last year. It is their policy not to renew temporary permissions, which left us in a very difficult situation as the space is vital to the club. The main sticking point was that the metal storage unit was deemed unsightly adjacent to a conservation area. After several meetings and negotiations I am pleased to say that we have now been granted full planning permission subject to us upgrading the external appearance of the unit within the next six months. The works include vertically cladding the two sides visible from the seawall and construction of a pitched, slated roof.
While this will create an unwelcome expense for the club, the long-term benefits and value in obtaining this premission will be well worth the outlay. Firstly, we now have the security in the knowledge that the unit is permanent and we can now proceed with some internal reorganisation of the unit; secondly, at some time in the future we can replace the unit with a permanent structure should we wish to, and as and when our finances permit.
The external works are due to start in mid-July. It is hoped to start the internal works earlier; these include the removal of sanitary conveniences and washing facilities. If there are any plumbers in the club who would like to help remove the sanitary ware, please give me a ring on 01590 674045. There may be some light labouring involved later on, so if anybody would like to volunteer to help, again give me a ring.
Alec Harmer, Chairman.

Important Notice:

Padlocks to Club Premises.
Recently, one of the padlocks to the club compound was reported as not working. On examination it was found that the lock had reportedly been filled with graphite grease and this had been the reason that it had stopped working.
I am therefore requesting that members should not attempt to lubricate the locks in future but report any problems to me and I will investigate.
Alec Harmer {Club Chairman}.
