Golf course adopted and building engagement to proceed
At the meeting of 13 May 2020 Council requested further work on the design brief, siting options and surrounding existing and future activities before signing off on the preliminary schematic design and siting option for the building. This is the intended purpose of stage three engagement. A schedule of functional areas will be informed by the engagement findings.
They also endorsed as stage one works the proposed golf course design to retain a nine-hole par 34 course and request the City progress these works to tender and delivery, noting the area of the golf course that coincides with the building node is to be further refined to ensure an integrated outcome inclusive of the first tee, the ninth hole, practice facilities, access, and the driving range tee-off location, and it can accommodate improvements that would increase course length and reduce lengthy walks between fairways, most notably at holes 5 and 6.
