ALDE Christmas Dinner

When: 01 December 2021, 6.00 -10.30pm

Where: The Event Centre, Collins Street., Melbourne.

ALDE held our annual member’s Christmas Dinner this week. A great night was had by all at The Events Centre in the city. This year Steve Webb of City West Water received the ALDE Recognition Award from our President Rodney Jackson. The award acknowledges excellence in the advancement of our Land Development Industry and we thank Steve for his outstanding contribution.

Another great golf day at the Royal Melbourne Golf Course.

ALDE’s 2019 Golf Day was proudly sponsored by Winslow Constructions Pty Ltd. A great day was had by all and the guest speaker, Luke Richard (an ambassador for Beyond Blue) spoke from the heart about his own story of dealing with mental illness. Luke we appreciate you sharing your very personal experience to help raise awareness. We had no idea that the construction industry has some of the highest rates of issues relating to mental illness. And thank you to Winslow’s Big Blue campaign for shining a light on this issue for our industry.

Grants and Planning! 
We are now well down the path to apply for government grants of up to 10 million dollars, these grant applications have required us to refine our plans and compile detailed data. To achieve this, we have had significant support from the team at Millar Merrigan who have a host of skills including but not limited to: Project Management, Urban Design, Town Planning, Civil Engineering, Land Surveying, Asset Recording, Building Design and Landscape Architecture and of course horse knowledge! Without this support we wouldn’t be able to have the correct information for our grant application to even be considered, so please make our gratitude known by supporting this long-standing, local business.

Meetings with Members of Parliament
Our meetings with Members of Parliament Cindy McLeish and Bridget Vallance have been successful and both MPs have been forthcoming in their support, providing us with further contacts and information to assist the project to take flight!

Yarra Ranges Council
Our next round of meetings is with Yarra Ranges Council to secure more local support for the Park. You can assist with this by sending letters to the Yarra Ranges council using our templated communication available at: the more people talking about YVEP the stronger our applications become.

Further Action
Yarra Ranges Council are developing a new Recreation and Open Space Strategy (ROSS).

The ROSS will replace the existing Recreation and Open Space Strategy (2013-2023), and will provide Council with the following outcomes:

  • A healthier, more active and engaged community (guided by Council’s Health and Wellbeing Strategy)
  • An open space network that sets Yarra Ranges apart, entices residents to settle and raise families, and supports universal access to physical activity, nature and the environment.

They are engaging with various stakeholders and community members to share their ideas and help shape the direction of the strategy. YVEP supporters have been identified as people who can provide further insight to the project, and so we invite you to participate in an online survey which will take approximately 5-10 minutes to complete.

We also encourage you to share the survey link with the rest of your network. To access the survey, please click the following link: Live.Move.Yarra Ranges


Another great event is done and dusted for the year with the ALDE / Winslow Golf Day being held on May 28th at the prestigious Royal Melbourne Golf Course.

We had a fairly full course with over 100 members and their guests attending the day. Royal Melbourne proved to be a challenging course for many with it’s greater than average undulation. We were so lucky that the Weather Gods were shining on us for this event; it was a bit cool but with little wind and no rain until later that evening, we really got lucky.

Thank you to our sponsors for the day, without them we just couldn’t make this happen:

  • Winslow – for being our naming rights sponsor for the 10th consecutive year.
  • Lojac – for sponsoring the Drinks cart, Beat the Pro and Nearest the Hole on Hole 3
  • Breese Pitt Dixon – for sponsoring the Nearest the Pin on Hole 10
  • Beveridge Williams – for sponsoring the Longest Drive on Hole 12.
