    Council give green light for Titans clubhouse in Oxenford
    Paul Weston, Gold Coast Bulletin
    July 30, 2019 6:44pm
    Subscriber only
    The Titans will have a clubhouse on the northern Gold Coast after striking a deal with council which has the support of a majority of councillors.

    The club will during the next six months spend $600,000 on plans and negotiate for poker machine licences with the Office of Liquor and Gaming.

    Speaking outside a council meeting today, Titans co-owner Darryl Kelly told The Bulletin: “It is a good step forward. We appreciate the support of council.”

    Asked how many machines would be sought, Mr Kelly replied: “We are going to apply for 200. There is no way we are going to get that.”

    The club expects to obtain 150 poker machines from the existing pool of licences in the region.

    A planning application, along with leasing arrangements, were finalised at full council today.

    The recommendation supported by councillors was that “in recognition of the significant economic and social benefit to the city securing a strong, financially viable Gold Coast Titans”, the council would sell its parcel of land within Oxenford Park for $2.1 million.

    A five-year lease would be granted to the Titans Oxenford Community Club which would see the clubhouse building constructed according to approved plans.

    Once the club was operational, the leasehold interest would be converted to freehold for the stated sale price.

    An east-west access track would be built and arrangements made for the relocation of the Oxenford Men’s Shed.

    Only councillors Peter Young and Daphne McDonald voted against.

    Area councillor William Owen-Jones said similar arrangements were made for St Stephen’s College and AB Paterson campuses on flood prone land owned by council.

    “So what we are doing here is ultimately entering into our standard lease arrangements in the short term but in the medium to longer term we are looking to sell that parcel of land to the Titans for a community club,” he said.

    The deal would show support for the Titans remaining on the Coast but also ensure a future for surrounding land users like the local cricket club and Oxenford Men’s Shed, he added.

    The $25 million clubhouse in Oberon Way opposite the Pacific Motorway just south of the Oxenford commercial centre, could be operating by March 2021.

    Earlier, a majority of councillors backed the planning application by the Titans for the new clubhouse.

    Planning committee chair Cameron Caldwell and Robina-based councillor Hermann Vorster, who raised legal issues and concerns about poker machines in a lengthy debate at committee, at full council spoke in favour of the application.

    Hinterland councillor Peter Young, who has been concerned about the take-up in open space in the area earmarked for higher density living, maintained a consistent stand of opposing the application. He was only supported by Cr Daphne McDonald.

    Area councillor William Owen-Jones, who has been talking to all stakeholders, received assurances from officers that several issues including a new meeting room, better acoustic barriers and removal of an outdoor smoking area had been “ticked off”.

    Deputy Mayor Donna Gates, having regularly driven through the area, believes the club will not make a huge negative impact on traffic.

    Junior football clubs were struggling for support in her area and the club would be a big boost, she said.

    “I don’t believe there will be a huge impact on the traffic situation in the northern Gold Coast. I hope this project gets through today,” she said.

    William Owen-Jones Division 2,

    Titans Oxenford Community Club

    Our office has received a survey form from consultants preparing the “Community Impact Statement” to assess the likely social and economic impacts of the grant of a Gaming Licence at 84 Old Pacific Highway, Oxenford.

    The impact statement is just part of the process that has to be followed for the Club to apply to the State for EGM licences.

    The survey has only been sent to ‘key community representatives’ in the area.

    The Titans Oxenford Community Club is a non-profit community Club with objects that include providing a social club premises for its members, supporting programs run by the Gold Coast Titans, including the Titans Community and Junior Development programs (as well as promoting the sport of rugby league and supporting other local sporting groups and community groups and charities).

    Once constructed the Club will have a Bistro, cafe, two bars and a kids play area. The applicant is seeking approval to operate up to 200 gaming machines at the Club.

    I will be completing the survey this week (it’s due by the 23rd August).

    If you would like to EMAIL my office providing your views I would appreciate being able to collate / incorporate them into the response (where appropriate).

    division2@goldcoast.qld.gov.au

    Please note that it has been requested that comments will need to be specific to the introduction of the 200 gaming machines at the Club, not gambling in general.

    ^^^^ I emailed the address and told him I want this Beautiful Club and it’s beautiful poker machines to ensure the future of Rugby League in our region and to give the people of that community a social hub.

    I encourage everyone of you to take two mins of your time and do the same.

    Not sure if any of you follow him but William Owen-Jones on his Facebook page posted the population growth of the Gold Coast. He posted in response to the Bulletin doing a story on the projected GC population in 2035 of 843000 people. I came to the Coast in 2003 and as of 2005 the population was 493649 and as of 2019 687460 is the population. This is almost to 200K jump in population and and roughly another 200k jump between now and 2035 which to me is staggering. Its also been said that the large number of that growth will be in the corridor from Helensvale to Pimpama..So I know that a few still think that the Titans opening a Club up that was is not the best option but given those figures and the growth in that corridor it makes complete sense. Also I looked at most the responses to William posting about the club in his area and a lot of residents can't wait for it to open as they are saying there is a need for such a club up that way. Given the growth, its a " If you build it , they will come" prospect. I live in Mudgeeraba and questioned the location however putting the business cap on it makes sense.

    I look at it this way if the club, once built funds the what the Titans are now spending on Junior Development then that is a huge chunk go change to go to the club becoming financially one of the only NRL clubs to make money outright ( Not rely on League Club Grants ).

    Just thought guys..... Sunny days ahead.

    My understanding is Titans owned.

    It’s funny Titanic. When the light rail was lauded for the GC there were many doomsayers. My response was that it would be a key infrastructure piece for the GC and look at it now. I’m not suggesting the Titans Tavern will be of a similar ilk but I believe that it’s been strategically placed to capitalise the boom in that area for the next 20 or so years.
