30 July 2015 Fishing Club’s Announcement Welcomed

Council, as the Corporate Manager of the Coffs Coast State Park Trust, has welcomed the news that the Deep Sea Fishing Club will be able to continue its operation through its partnership with the North Coast Hotel Group.

In making decisions about commercial undertakings on the Reserve, the Trust is obliged by the NSW Government’s Crown Lands Act to consider the best and highest use of the Reserve, including commercial viability and commercial return on the assets in its care.

This was confirmed by correspondence provided to the Trust by Crown Lands which Council, as the Corporate Manager of the Trust, was required to rely on in its deliberations.

It is pleasing that through the hard work of all parties involved that the Deep Sea Fishing Club can continue its activities. This has also been able to be achieved in accordance with the advice provided to the Trust by Crown Lands.

Council, as Corporate Manager of the Trust, is looking forward to continuing to work with the Club for the duration of the current lease.

At the completion of the lease in 2021, the Deep Sea Fishing Club - and any other interested parties - will be encouraged to take part in the future Expression of Interest process that is required to take place.
