The purpose of this website is to follow the progress of a possible active and connected neighbourhood for retirees and over 55’s as part of Federal Golf Club.
A program of extensive consultation has commenced with a wide ranging group of stakeholders to help shape a proposal that brings significant benefits to both the future residents and the broader community. As the consultation continues this website will capture the discussions, concerns, concepts in a single place to make it convenient for those with an interest in the proposal to access the current information and also to avoid any misinformation being presented relating to the form, status or progress of any proposal.
We look forward to working with the interested and engaged stakeholder groups to deliver an outcome that is shaped by consultation, responsive to the needs of the community and world class in the active and connected lifestyle it provides for those who will call it home.
Mbark builds, owns and operates world class villages that celebrate ageing in an active and connected lifestyle. Mbark’s mission is to provide village environments that provide their residents with independence, vitality, security and peace of mind and avoid the pitfalls of social dislocation and isolation. It is about providing the best we can to people who deserve respect and admiration for the contributions they have made and will continue to make in their lives.
Being physically active is fundamental to our wellbeing. This is relatively well understood by most but acted upon by very few – we intend to change that.
But being active means more to us than only being physically active. Our lives are richer if we stay active in all facets.
Active minds, active communities and active contributions that share, educate, restore, protect and thrive.
We need to build neighbourhoods, the way they used to be.
We need to stay connected to our families, and connect deeply with friends and communities. We need to connect with each other, the old fashioned way.
At the same time we should be open to embracing the benefits of digital connectivity, which are set to grow exponentially. Technology is reshaping the way we communicate, the way we learn and allowing us to access talents and ideas from all over the globe.
Age isn’t a barrier to ideas and talent, and technology should be seen as an enabler to share insights and experiences crafted over a life well lived. Be generous with what we know, what we do and who we are and be connected.
