Support gathers to save Kingswood Golf Course in Dingley Village

POSTED ON September 10, 2018 @ 8:24 am

The Save Kingswood Group has been rallying to save the golf course  from being subdivided into unit lots for the last three years, and have managed to gather over 8000 submissions.

“The course is in the centre of Dingley Village and it’s the only big tree parkland we have. This development could easily flood out Dingley Village more than it does already, and traffic, infrastructure, and services are barely keeping up at the moment. They certainly wouldn’t be able to cater for another 1000 small units. We do love the green nature at Dingley Village and it’s just sacrilege to bulldoze it,” Save Kingswood Group Secretary Kevin Poulter said.

The cut off point to submit the objections was 30 August, and the Save Kingswood Group has now submitted them to Kingston council offices.

Plans have been touted since 2015 to redistribute the land and turn it into housing. The project’s senior development manager Anna Martiniello outlined the plan for the course to The News earlier in the year.
