  • The General Residential Zone (GRZ) and Schedule 1 to the Residential Zone applies to all land within the site.
  • The site is separated into three areas. See the Amstel Concept Development Plan shown below.
  • Two Development Plans apply to the site:
  • Amstel Golf Club Residential Area Development Plan

Proposed changes to the 2017 adopted Amstel Golf Course Development Plan

The amended draft Development Plan proposes to accommodate a retirement village along the site’s southern boundary, which aligns with the objectives of Schedule 12 of the Development Plan Overlay (DPO12) to “encourage a range of dwelling densities and housing types […]”.

The proposal further includes a new, shared, 2.5m wide path through the southern and western open space areas linking to the main park within the area. This path would also connect into an existing path at Gracehill Mews to the south of the site. Refer to the full amended Draft Amstel Golf Course Development Plan or an overview of the changes as shown in below maps:
