The Kensington Gardens Lifestyle Estates retirement village development, featuring 244 homes, has been approved and is set to deliver a range of facilities for active seniors.
The Material Change of Use application for Retirement Facility was lodged last year over five lots located on the corner of Mt Perry and Moore Park Roads.
Proposed to be completed over five stages, the first stage of development would see 39 houses constructed along with a variety of community facilities.
The subsequent stages would feature the construction of 47, 41, 64 and 53 dwellings respectively.
‘The Barn’ Community Club is set to include a kitchen, dining and function room, stage, bar, lounge, salon, amenities, reception, sales and office rooms and multi-function rooms which are expected to operate between 7 am and 10 pm.
A men’s shed and a health and wellbeing centre featuring gymnasium, change rooms, treatment rooms, consulting rooms and a foyer would also be developed on site.
For active retirees the lifestyle village plans feature tennis and pickleball courts, a lap and resort pool, croquet and yoga lawn, two bocce courts, barbecue areas, a community produce garden, golf chipping and putting range and driving range and a washbay area.
The homes built onsite will feature a mix of two and three bedrooms.
“The proposal consists of a retirement village with an emphasis to cater for active seniors with Recreational Vehicles,” the application said.
“The design of the dwellings takes into account the need to store recreational vehicles within each dwelling site.”
Following assessment by relevant agencies, the primary access to the site will be from Moore Park Road with an exit only provided to Mt Perry Road.
A connecting footpath located along Mt Perry Road was also included in the Kensington Gardens retirement village proposed plans.
