Planning Proposal lodged for new Campsie RSL

On Monday 2 November 2015, Campsie RSL lodged the Planning Proposal to Canterbury City Council for the redevelopment of the new Campsie RSL.

This follows a period of extensive planning and community consultation, in which community feedback was provided regarding three proposed masterplans, ultimately helping to shape the preferred redevelopment plan. 

The redevelopment proposes an expanded club facility, high rise residential apartments and seniors living, specialty shops, a medical centre, childcare facility and fitness centre, as well as basement car parking.

Campsie RSL plans to benefit local community

Campsie is set to be revitalised with the redevelopment of Campsie RSL to provide highrise residential apartments, seniors accommodation, a medical centre and a childcare facility.

Project representative Paul Di Cristo said it would trigger the gentrification of Campsie as developments in the area intensified.

A planning proposal will be lodged with Canterbury Council this month after two community consultation sessions were held seeking feedback from residents and club members.

Under the plan, the club will be expanded, with residential apartments to be constructed along with a fitness centre and basement car parking.

The redevelopment would cater towards all demographics, including young families, seniors and youth.

Stage 2 Consultation Outcomes

In July 2015 we hosted our Stage 2 consultation events that saw the club host a Master Plan Drop in Day to exhibit the Preferred Master Plan for the new Campsie RSL.

Our Preferred Master Plan for the new Campsie RSL includes:

  • an expanded club facility
  • high rise residential apartments and seniors living
  • specialty shops
  • a medical centre
  • childcare facility
  • fitness centre
  • basement car parking.

The development of this Master Plan was guided by our community and stakeholder engagement which provides for a quality urban design and community return.

At this Drop in Day event, the project team undertook community information sessions and exhibited the preferred club plan in order to gain further feedback and understand community attitudes to the design principles. This was the next key step in refining the design vision for the club.

Campsie RSL allocate more than $500,000 to local organisations

Campsie RSL has announced that they are contributing more than $500,000 into the community with a number of different local community and charitable organisations receiving ClubGRANTS funding as part of the 2015 grants program.

ClubGRANTS funding aims to support community organisations, sporting groups and charities that make a difference in a local community.

This year’s Campsie RSL grant recipients are a diverse group that provide a range of community services to the Campsie and wider Canterbury community. These organisations provide support within the fields of education, health, sport, medical research, youth, family and disability services. 

Master Plan Drop in Day

Campsie RSL are pleased to advise local residents and stakeholders that the Club has now finalised a set of design principles and a Master Plan for the Club’s site that we believe represents the preferred development outcome for a new Campsie RSL. 

On 25th July 2015, Urban Concepts and Campsie RSL invite neighbours and interested members of the Campsie community to participate in the Master Plan Drop in Day.
