Sale by Burhill
As you are aware the Club is looking at a ‘once in a lifetime’ opportunity to secure freehold ownership of our Clubhouse and Dinghy Park.
A lot of preparatory work has been done so we can participate in the sale process which Burhill is running. Thank you to all those who have offered to help us.
As our primary approach, we intend to make an offer jointly with Chichester Harbour Conservancy for the package that includes the Moorings, the Quay, the Clubhouse and the Dinghy Park. Our agreement with the Conservancy, should our offer succeed, is that the Club will own freeholds of the Clubhouse and the Dinghy Park.
This offer will be indicative and not binding, it is likely that the process will take another few months to complete. Before any offer by the Club is confirmed as binding we intend to explain the details to Members. Our objective is to ensure that Burhill views our offer as sensible for their process and that it is in the overall future interest of the Club and the Village.
In coming days and weeks all members will be receiving a letter seeking your generous support in this effort. Please do consider carefully what you can do to help the Club secure this opportunity which will vouchsafe the future of our Club.
