Banyule City Council Meeting 26th June 2017


Following a presentation by the SSOSCC group to the Banyule City Council in May, the following resolution was passed by council in support of the groups efforts to SAVE the STRATHALLAN OPEN SPACE:



Mr Brian Grace spoke to the item.




The Strathallan Golf Course is currently located on land known as the Strathallan Open Space land located at 100 Main Drive, Bundoora, in the City of Darebin.


The Save Strathallan Open Space Community Coalition Inc. has written to Banyule City Council in relation to the Strathallan Open Space land raising concerns about the termination of the Strathallan Golf Club’s Lease and potential future rezoning of the land.


While Banyule Council is not responsible for decisions in relation to the lease, sale or rezoning of the land, it could make a submission in relation to any future rezoning application. Any rezoning request should be supported by analysis to determine future public open space, community facility and infrastructure needs as well as environmental, transport and nearby residential neighbourhood character impacts.


Resolution (CO2017/130)


That Council:



  • Supports the retention of the much needed open space provided by the Strathallan Golf Course and the original town planning vision that protected this land with Public Open Space and Recreation zoning.


  • Writes to the Vice Chancellor of La Trobe University, the Minister for Planning, the Minister for Finance/Member for Preston and the Speaker of the Legislative Assembly/Member for Bundoora and all Upper House Members of the area expressing support for the retention of the open space to protect environmental values of the land and retain the important recreation services provided to the community by the Strathallan Golf Course.


  • Writes to Darebin City Council to express support for the resolution it adopted at
  • its meeting on 13 February 2017 on this matter, and request that it keep Banyule City Council informed of progress on the resolution.


  • Writes to Save Strathallan Open Space Community Coalition Inc. to thank them for their community advocacy on this matter and to advise them of this resolution.
