The recent submission of development applications for the retirement village proposal at Federal Golf Club has seen renewed interest within the community and within the Club membership.

There is a significant amount of information on the proposal that has accumulated over many years of ongoing consultations on this website. Our desire to transparently share the actions and outcomes of these consultations and the steps taken in bringing the proposal to its current point has created a volume of information that can be difficult to take in, in its entirety.

To ensure that community members are able to shape their opinions using facts and details from this information, we thought it would be helpful to revisit certain matters that continue to circulate about the proposal.

You can find this here and as always please don't hesitate to reach out to us with questions at

Our development applications for the proposed works at Federal Golf Club have been submitted and are now on notification for viewing and comment. These applications include:

  • Golf course works (including earthworks, water infrastructure and other associated works)

  • Subdivision of the existing parcel (resulting in a golf course parcel and future retirement village parcel)

  • Design and siting of the retirement village (and associated infrastructure and other works)

The development applications are available for comment from the 19th February 2024 to the 8th March 2024. More details and access to the development applications can be found on the Environment, Planning and Sustainable Development Directorate (EPSDD) website in the page for development applications.

Please don't hesitate to reach out to us at with any questions you may have.

We invite you to drop in, check out our plans and reach out with any comments or questions during our Community Consultation (being held 24 June to 5 August) for the proposed Concessional Lease Variation and design and siting of a retirement village at Federal Golf Club.
