AustralianSuper bought the site in late 2014 from Peninsula Kingswood Country Golf Club.

AustralianSuper developed a first masterplan for the site in 2016 and asked Kingston Council to seek an amendment to the Kingston Planning Scheme in order to rezone the site for residential development. In October 2018, Kingston Council voted not to support the proposed planning scheme amendment and AustralianSuper withdrew its planning application for the site.

In the interim, AustralianSuper reviewed its plans and assessed the feedback received from key stakeholders, including the local Dingley Village community. This process included consideration of the formal objections received by Council to the earlier application and subsequent conversations held with a wide range of stakeholders.

This feedback and the input of planning experts has been used to inform the new masterplan, an inclusive, attractive, high-quality residential development that will enhance the area for everyone who calls Dingley Village home. In November 2020 AustralianSuper submitted this draft proposal under the state government’s Planning Guidelines for the Conversion of Golf Course Land to Other Purposes in Victoria.

In May 2021 the Minister appointed himself as the Planning Authority for Amendment C199 and referred the new proposal to the Golf Course Redevelopment Standing Advisory Committee to coordinate its public exhibition, to receive and review submissions, and to advise on its merits.

A decision on the applications is likely later in 2021 or early 2022.

The proposed new neighbourhood will reflect all that’s great about Dingley Village.
