Tweed Valley Sailing Club at Fingal has sought Tweed Shire Council support to use part of the road reserve near the old boat harbour to store members’ dinghies. And the council is seeking feedback from the community on the proposal.
The dinghies currently have to be stored at the nearby property of the club’s vice-commodore as there is nowhere they can be safely tied up at the beach.
The club’s proposal includes erecting a security fence around a 30m x 30m section of the site, located on the east or beach side of the road, just north of the Lagoon Road and beach access turnoff.
The club previously requested use of crown land for the storage but it was refused.
