The state government released Planning Guidelines for the Conversion of Golf Course Land to Other Purposes in Victoria earlier this year. These guidelines will help determine the future of the former Kingswood golf course in Centre Dandenong Road, Dingley Village.
The guidelines were developed by the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning in 2019; they set out clear expectations for all stakeholders, including the community, about how golf course land should be redeveloped.
The guidelines and full report of the Standing Advisory Committee can be read here.
After considering a range of options, AustralianSuper has decided to develop a new proposal for the site in line with the government’s Planning Guidelines for the Conversion of Golf Course Land to Other Purposes.
The proposal will be informed by the extensive community and stakeholder engagement feedback gained over many years and will aim to balance the needs of the many stakeholders (including the local community, government and statutory authorities).
