Following the community consultation on Draft Variation 384 between October and December 2022, the Minister for the Environment Mick Gentleman has approved Plan Variation 384 (PV384). The Variation amends the Red Hill and Garran precinct maps and codes consistent with the RHIP - recommendation 7 in relation to future development for a retirement village at the Federal golf course with access off Kitchener St. The variation also rezones 10Ha of land considered to be of high ecological value in the north-west portion of the site and includes this land in the Red Hill Nature Reserve.

On Saturday 31 July we were invited to present to the Garran Residents’ Association following the recent approval of the Red Hill Integrated Plan.

Our presentation shared concept plans of how the 18-hole golf course could be retained, and outlined the principles by which the future design of the retirement village would be undertaken. It also corrected some false assumptions spreading throughout the community regarding the potential retirement village footprint.

This was the first in many future consultation engagements with community members. You can find a copy of the presentation and an accompanying statement from the President of the Federal Golf Club here.
