Dear members


The day is upon us!  The consent application for development of New Chums Beach has been publicly notified and ratepayers should have received a letter to that effect from TCDC.  This is a first response from your committee to alert you about the application and to advise you that we will be sending you more information around 23 July, once our legal team has finished a careful review of the application.  The application is complex and thus our team needs time to properly consider it.  We will provide an outline of the association’s position on the application and provide you with guidance on making individual submissions.


The actual application documents and details about making a submission can be downloaded from the TCDC web site at…..


Meanwhile you are urged to dust off your thinking on the issue and take time to look at the application documents.  If you wish to make a submission, you will need to submit it by 5:00 pm on 17 August.  You do not have long!


You will hear more from us soon.  Please spread the word if you have friends or relatives that are interested in New Chums.
