The Links at Kennedy Bay new master planning underway

POSTED ON November 28, 2019 @ 11:03 am

A “once in a generation opportunity” for Port Kennedy is back on the drawing board with planning for a new residential, commercial and cultural development again underway.

Adjacent to the southern end of the Warnbro Sound, updated plans for the new Kennedy Bay development include about 900 residential lots ranging in size from 180sqm to 600sqm, as well as a commercial and cultural development.

The proposed 66ha coastal community has been pending for more than two decades with the first vision of development of the site dating back to 1992.

According to information released by the developers – dated August 2, 2019 – the first phase of new community infrastructure at the site includes upgrades to The Links Golf Club with a new restaurant that will be open to the general public by late 2021, and the release of the first residential lots by 2022.

While Port Kennedy Progress Association chairman Dirk Mulder welcomed the development, he said some residents felt they had been left in the dark on the progress of the development.

“It appears through information released by the developers that nine or so holes of the The Links at Kennedy Bay golf course will be lost for the development and re-built on the eastern side of the development area.

“There are still many details that have not yet been ironed out in what is a once in a generation opportunity for Port Kennedy.”

The Association is holding a public forum on Thursday, December 5 to bring the community up to speed on information that is available at this stage.
