Lease extension update – meeting held with C&RT on site which was v interesting and helpful. Verbally they have indicated that they are happy to extend the lease and are happy with the proposed jetty plans. Now they need chasing to firstly send letter of intent and then to issue the lease extension. They have extensive work to do on dam which will probably happen in Summer of 2016 when lake is naturally low but may need to lower it further. They had sent us a potted history of the lake which will be put on the website.
