Amendment C142 - Kingston Links Golf Course, Rowville

What is Amendment C142

Amendment C142 is a proposed amendment to the Knox Planning Scheme and applies to the land known as the Kingston Links Golf Course, 14 Corporate Avenue, Rowville and the adjoining Council Reserve (see map below).

The Knox Housing Strategy 2015 identified Kingston Links Golf Course as a strategic site that could support a mix of residential and local retail uses pending future rezoning. In order to facilitate the redevelopment, changes to the Knox Planning Scheme are required. The proposed planning scheme changes are provided in draft form, so that landowners and the community can provide feedback on the proposed planning controls.

Council resolved to seek permission from the Minister for Planning to exhibit Amendment C142 on 26 June 2017. A copy of the report and minutes are available at www.knox.vic.gov.au

Amendment C142 proposes the following:

  • Rezone the land for residential and public uses.
  • Remove the Land Subject to Inundation Overlay subject to the filling of the site and approval from Melbourne Water.
  • Apply a Development Plan Overlay that would set the requirements for a detailed Development Plan to guide the future development of the site.

Information about the development plan

At this stage, the development plan by the Pask Group has not been completed, has not been considered by Council, and is not part of the Amendment C142 process. The final version of Amendment C142 (if approved) will guide and inform the detailed development plan. There will be a separate public exhibition and approval process for the development plan. At this separate exhibition process, you will have the opportunity to make a submission on the development plan which Council will consider in its final determination of the proposal.

Please note that there are no third party appeal rights to the approval of a Development Plan.
