As has occurred a number of times since its inception, Chatswood Golf Club is proposing to sell some of its land.
NOTE: This article is being continuously updated as new information comes to hand.
On the 6th June 2016 at 7PM the golf club is seeking their member’s approval to sell a large portion of their land as shown in the accompanying diagram. This land includes their carpark and clubhouse. Members have been told that the Club wants to sell the land to ‘Watermark‘ for the purpose of constructing ‘seniors living apartments‘. It also appears that as part of the development the Club would gain a new clubhouse with underground parking.
There is no information as to the scale and density of the new residential development. This would be subject to a separate development proposal. With the pending dismissal of Willoughby Council, it is unclear as to who would assess such an application.
The proposed development is likely to pose a number of concerns for nearby residents including: increased traffic in Beaconsfield Rd; overlooking onto residential properties and loss of privacy and other impacts.
