Community to have their say in controversial North Lakes Resort development

POSTED ON November 1, 2018 @ 9:11 am

THE Village Retirement Group (TVRG) is driving ahead with plans to develop North Lakes Resort Golf Course and has hit back at “misleading information” from residents.

Golf course owner Adam Simpson indicated the course would close in December next year and be sold to TVRG to be developed into a retirement village and aged care facility, subject to government approval.

Mr Simpson also said he would consider his options at the end of 2019 if TVRG decided to not proceed with its plans.

The proposal has been met with fierce opposition from many residents who have formed a group, Save North Lakes Golf Course, to fight the development.

The group has been preparing behind the scenes to ready an objection to any development application from TVRG that is submitted to Moreton Bay Regional Council.

They have also received the backing of both Federal LNP MP for Petrie Luke Howarth and Federal Labor candidate for Petrie Corinne Mulholland.

The development application is expected to be lodged in December, prior to the council’s Christmas shutdown.

If approved, TVRG anticipates construction of the village and “North Lakes Common” (ie the open space) would begin in January 2020.

TVRG is now carrying out a second round of community engagement to find out what residents wanted to see on the 57ha of remaining open space on the site.

“We see this as a chance for genuine community outcomes,’’ TVRG Managing Director Justin Harrison said.

“We also want North Lakes residents to understand the facts about the proposal, explore what’s possible and not be hoodwinked by fabrications.”

The golf club, which is a privately run business on privately owned land, has been operating at a loss since 2013, according to the website.
