Amendment C180 - Hawthorn Football Club, Tootal Road, Dingley

Background

In 2016 Council approved a planning permit and planning scheme amendment for Hawthorn Football Club's new headquarters and training facility in Dingley Village.

Plans for the facility have changed and now Hawthorn Football Club have submitted a combined planning scheme amendment and planning permit application to amend the existing incorporated document to allow for additional uses to be applied for. This includes an indoor recreation facility (6 court basketball stadium), medical centre, shop, café and museum. As part of this process, a concurrent planning permit application is being considered which is to use and develop the land for a minor sport and recreation facility, function centre, indoor recreation facility, medical centre, residential building, shop, food and drinks premises (café), museum and reduction of bicycle parking requirements.
