KINGSWOOD GOLF COURSE DEVELOPMENT PROPOSAL GETS WHAT IT DESERVES

 

Member for Isaacs, Mark Dreyfus has thanked City of Kingston councillors who voted unanimously to abandon Planning Scheme Amendment C151 which could have allowed the development of around 800 residential dwellings on the Kingswood Golf Course in Dingley Village.

 

“The proposal to convert the Kingswood Golf Course into around 800 residential dwellings never met community expectations and has got what it deserves,” Mr Dreyfus said.

 

“Special use zones are intended for just that, special use, not large-scale residential development. It is good that the City of Kingston has abandoned this proposed planning scheme amendment. I now call on the owners of the Peninsula Kingswood Golf Course to re-consider their intentions with the best interests of the Dingley Village community in mind.”

 

“Thousands of people have chosen to make Dingley Village their home because of the open space that this community offers. I will continue to fight on behalf of Dingley Village residents to make sure that their village retains the open space that makes it special,” Mr Dreyfus said.
