Plans announced to redevelop Cessnock Golf Club

POSTED ON February 12, 2020 @ 11:31 am

Flooding, traffic and the location of new houses were among the concerns raised at an information meeting at Cessnock Golf Club on Saturday, when Principle Living revealed its draft plans for a potential redevelopment of the course.

The plans would see the defunct club redeveloped into a 12-hole course and over-55s lifestyle resort with more than 300 manufactured homes, under a joint venture between the Stevens Group, the McCloy Group and Sue Mann Nursing and Community Care.

“Most people who came through the door had good attitudes, and were interested in what is going on,” he said.

“The purpose of the day was to show the technical information on our draft plan, and for people to help us fill in the gaps – and there were some good suggestions.”

Mr Blackburn-Smith said the main concerns relayed on Saturday were flooding, vehicular access and the location of the proposed houses.

EARLY DAYS: A draft concept plan to redevelop the former Cessnock Golf Club site.

The course layout was another talking point, with the former 18-hole course to be reduced to a 12-hole format.

Mr Blackburn-Smith said the company has employed greenkeepers to maintain the course, but could not provide any more resources until it is certain that the development will go ahead.

He said the development application should be lodged in about three months’ time.

The company’s aim is to have the course operational by 2021, pending council and other approvals.
