KINGSWOOD GOLF COURSE DEVELOPMENT
A number of people have contacted me concerned about news of a second proposal to develop Kingswood Golf Course. In 2018 I stood beside the Dingley community and I will again this time around. I'll do everything that I can to make sure Dingley residents come first.
What is Kingston Council saying about the new proposal?
The City of Kingston published on its website information about the proposal. You can read more about it here. Mayor Steve Staikos said the Victorian Planning Minister’s decision means that although Council, like the community, will have an opportunity to make a submission...it will not have the final say about the future of the site.
Where can I see what is being proposed?
You can read all the documents about what is being proposed by AustralianSuper here.
I want to make a submission
On 19 August 2021 the Golf Course Redevelopment Standing Advisory Committee was advised that the Minister for Planning has decided to allow an additional extension of a further two weeks for submissions to be received on this Proposal. All submissions must now be received by 11:59pm on Friday 3 September 2021.
On August 20 2021 I lodged my submission. I am opposed to the development. You can read my submission here
Who is the Golf Course Redevelopment Advisory Committee?
