I have advised the Vikings Group that its proposal to redevelop the Capital golf course in Narrabundah for residential purposes will not be supported by the Government.
I have written to the Vikings Group to ensure that it avoids unnecessary expense that may be incurred in developing its plans further.
The Vikings acquired this site some years ago for the purpose of operating it as a golf course. The community therefore has an expectation that it will continue to be operated as such.
Additionally it’s clear the community does not support the Vikings proposal to convert the Capital golf course into residential development.
I think that it is important that the site should be retained as a recreational and open green space. The Government takes its role of protecting important community assets through the planning system seriously.
