Disposal of Public Land

Date: Wednesday 6th June 2018

On Monday May 21 and Wednesday May 23, Council advertised the disposal of un-utilised Council land. 
Much of this land is public open space and was identified through the development of the Municipal Management Plan as surplus to the needs of Council.
This is not a revenue raising exercise but rather an opportunity to save on land taxes and maintenance costs with savings and proceeds from the sales going back to community programs including the continued upgrade of recreational facilities.
Of the 11 identified parcels of land, five will first be offered to adjoining land owners and one to a conservation group before they are auctioned.
Advising the community of the disposal is just the first step in a lengthy process which may involve re-zoning (a lengthy process in itself) so it may be some time before they reach auction.
A list of the land and more information can be found by downloading the pdf to the right.
Any objections to the disposal of this land will need to be received by 5pm Tuesday 12 June 2018. (21 days from last date advertised).
