Seniors Living, Penrith Golf Course


The Penrith Golf Course is an 18 hole Golf Course and Clubhouse located between The Northern Road and the suburb of Glenmore Park. The site is zoned for Private Recreation. Through the application of the State Environmental Planning Policy (Housing for Seniors and People with a Disability) 2004, Mecone secured a Site Compatibility Certificate, which makes seniors housing permissible with consent on the site.

A subsequent Development Application for 159 x Independent Living Units for purposely designed for seniors will be established on the site adjacent to the existing Penrith Golf Course Clubhouse. The development includes provision of onsite dining facilities, indoor and outdoor recreation areas, medical consultation rooms, underground car parking and a pool to be established in a garden setting.

  • Negotiate the conditions of the Site Compatibility Certificate;
