Narooma Men's Shed closer to finding a home

Since 2012 the Narooma Mens Shed has been leasing temporary facilities at 24 Glasshouse Rocks Road Narooma at a generously discounted rate made available by a local patron of the arts and community. This lease however is set to expire in 2019 and the men's Shed, with around 50 active members have been lobbying Council to assist them to find a long term site. A number of sites have been investigated including multiple site visits by staff and recently, following correspondence with the Roads Minister, negotiations with RMS staff and the commissioning of a rental valuation began for the possible use of the site next to the Narooma Scout Hall. Though the land is adjacent to the corridor for a future Narooma bypass it will hopefully buy the Men's Shed some time before they need to concern themselves with being next to a major town bypass. At Tuesday's Cuncil meeting it was agreed that Council approve a lease to Council from Roads and Maritime Services over Lots 1 and 2, DP 1068027, and a sub-lease to Narooma Men’s Shed from Council over Lots 1 and 2, DP 1068027. The General Manager is now delegated to finalise negotiations with Narooma Men’s Shed and Roads and Maritime Services and to take all other actions required to implement the leases including applying the Common Seal of Council to any lease documents.
