Member for South Coast Shelley Hancock today announced Marine Rescue Ulladulla has been given the green light to commence reconstruction of their facility that burnt to the ground last October.

Mrs Hancock said construction could commence on the original site in coming months with the potential for the new building to be in place by the end of 2014.

“This is a great result for local volunteers of Marine Rescue Ulladulla who have been operating out of temporary premises since last year when fire destroyed their permanent facility on Wason Street,” Mrs Hancock said.

“The loss of the Marine Rescue Ulladulla headquarters impacted the entire community, with the service essential for those who utilise our local waterways significantly downsized while waiting for the go ahead to replace their headquarters,” she said.

“This lengthy process came to an end after I met with the Minister for Lands and expressed my concern that this essential service needed to be rebuilt on its current site as a matter of priority.

“I also invited the Minister for Emergency Services, Michael Gallacher to the site where I was able to reiterate how important the site and rebuilding project is to Marine Rescue and the community.

“Following a tough internal battle, this is a pleasing result for Marine Rescue Ulladulla.

“Congratulations to Marine Rescue Ulladulla volunteers, particularly Commander Ken Lambert who have diligently soldiered on and provided their efficient their service over the busy holiday period since last October, in temporary premises.

“With the red tape overcome and approvals given, I look forward to construction commencing as soon as possible with the building ready for use by the end of the year,” Mrs Hancock said.
