Plans afoot to expand Red Hill Reserve

Red Hill Reserve will provide more recreation and conservation opportunities under a new plan endorsed by the local community.

Minister for Planning and Land Management, Mick Gentleman said the Integrated Plan was a result of extensive planning work and collaboration with the community

“The new plan will guide the future of the Federal Golf Course and add more land to the well-loved Red Hill Nature Reserve,” Minister Gentleman said.

“We received 929 pieces of feedback with the majority of submissions supportive of the plan, which several local community organisations have also endorsed.

“The plan provides a clear direction for the Federal Golf Course site and will help retain the 18-hole golf course while protecting valued green space and adding new ecological opportunities.”

He said the southern portion of the course had been identified as suitable for low impact development such as residential retirement accommodation.

“Any new development will require traffic upgrades and ecological protections and be assessed by the independent planning and land authority,” the Minister said.

He said the Territory Plan will now need to be varied to allow the plan to be implemented.

The final plan is available on the Planning website.
