Intention to Extend Lease - Hope Tennis Club

Friday 20 July 2018

Hope Tennis Club recently approached the Council about expanding its clubrooms.

The club is intending to fund raise the costs of the building expansion, but needs approval to extend its lease. However, as the project will increase the amount of land occupied by the clubrooms, we’re publicly notifying the request for a new lease.

Proposed lease term 30 years

Due to the fact the lease will encompass an upgraded building, and upgraded courts, at considerable cost to the club, the lease will be issued for 10 years, with two further rights of renewal of 10 years each (a total of 30 years).  The lease will be granted under Sections 54(1)(b), and 54(1)(c) of the Reserves Act 1977.

The proposed new lease will also include the expanded tennis court layout, and cover all 10 tennis courts.

  • Current building floor area: 81 square metres. 
  • New building floor area: 174.5 square metres.
