Jaclyn Symes (MLC, Northern Victoria) made the announcement on Friday that Minister for Planning Richard Wynne had approved a planning scheme amendment and planning permit for the subdivision ending a five-year battle for the club and the developers.
For the subdivision and housing development on 7.98 hectares of land to take place part of the course needed to be rezoned from Special Use Zone (SUZ) to General Residential Zone (GRZ).
“This decision ticks all the boxes,” Ms Symes said.
“It’s about making homes more affordable where people want to live, boosting our construction industry and securing the future of one of our much-loved golf clubs.
“This venture is a long time coming.
It’s properly planned and carefully considered – and now it’s time to get on with it.”
