Member for Bega Andrew Constance has today advised that the lease concerns surrounding Pambula Preschool are progressing towards resolution.

Mr Constance said The Department of Industry – Crown Lands have had recent discussions with the preschool and has provided them with assistance in renewing their lease.

“I am pleased to advise that the preschool has now lodged the required paperwork for a new lease and this will be given priority.

“I understand the community angst surrounding this matter and whilst it has taken time to rectify, it is progressing positively.

“Preschool education plays such an important role in local communities and I can assure our community that the preschool can continue to operate as usual until the new lease is in place,” Mr Constance said.

“I would like to make clear that there will not be an open tender for this land, it will continue to be available only for the preschool, which I trust will give the committee and community certainty over its operation.”
