Apart from being the name of the Vine Lodge subdivision project, Vine Lodge Lane is the proposed name for the new road to access the subdivision.
The Vine Lodge House and outbuildings are an historically and aesthetically significant heritage item. The Malcolm family have owned the property for over 20 years. For more information visit www.vinelodge.com.au/history/
In 2018, with overwhelming community support, went to the Land and Environment Court to oppose road engineering requirements that dictated an intersection treatment that would have been undeniably detrimental to the special character of the Exeter Village. The original entrance to the subdivision was along the existing Vine Lodge driveway, the resolution was the relocation of the intersection further north. Our heritage consultants were happy with the outcome as it leaves the original Vine lodge driveway intact, and has no impact of the village centre.
Council required the removal of a group of oak trees along Exeter Road to ensure safe site lines for the new road. Instead of replacing them, they were relocated a short distance away. Our heritage landscape consultant selected the new position of the trees, and they look great in their new home.
We will build a new pedestrian link from Vine Lodge Lane to Exeter Park, between lots 11 and 12, for the location please refer to the Masterplan.
In the early planning stage (2008), an urban analysis was conducted by our heritage consultants based on the heritage curtilage of the historic Vine Lodge house and the Exeter Village context. The subdivision layout grew from this.
At this stage we do not have a clear timeline for release of land or houses. Please get in touch if you would like to receive updates.
