About Us

Norah Head Lighthouse Reserve Trust

Norah Head Lighthouse Reserve Trust was appointed by the NSW Minister for Lands in 2007. Members of the community who are appointed to Reserve Trust boards undertake a valuable and responsible role in the management of community facilities and Crown reserves. Trust board members are empowered to make decisions regarding the use and management of the land and are responsible for the implementation of those decisions. Trustees are appointed for a term of up to five years. At the end of their term members can be re-appointed, but are not necessarily guaranteed re-appointment. The Norah Head Lighthouse Reserve Trust consists of seven (7) members with a Chair, Secretary and Treasurer. It also has four ex officio members representing the Department of Lands, Central Coast Council and the Central Coast Area Consultative Committee. Ex officio members have all the rights and responsibilities of other members. They can speak and vote at meetings and can be elected to executive positions. The Trust also calls on the services of an Hon. Solicitor and a Grants Officer, who are not Trustees. All Trustees, ex officio Members, the Hon. Solicitor and the Grants Officer, are volunteers. The Trust meets once per month on the last Tuesday of the month.
