Submissions close 5pm, Friday 3 May 2019

Purpose

Council is seeking submissions from the community on its intention to sell the land Lot 1 on Plan of Subdivision PS821546 (Volume 12058, Folio 661), currently known as 1270 Bridgewater Lakes Road, Cashmore.

Background

The dwelling situated on the Portland Airport land has been identified as surplus to Council’s needs. As a result a two lot subdivision has been approved to excise off the dwelling from the airport land. The completion of the subdivision has allowed for the possibility of the land and dwelling to be sold.

Lot 1 includes 2.875 ha and the former Portland Airport caretaker’s residence.

At the ordinary council meeting on Tuesday 26 March 2019, Council resolved to give public notice of its intention to sell 1270 Bridgewater Lakes Road, Cashmore by listing for sale by private treaty or public auction.

The sale of land will reduce Council’s risk relating to the ongoing maintenance of the land and dwelling.

Section 189 of the Local Government Act 1989 (the Act) requires councils to do certain things before selling or exchanging land.

Section 189(2)(a) of the Act requires councils to give at least 28 days public notice before the sale or exchange of land. Further, section 189(3) of the Act provides that a person has a right to make a submission under section 223 on the proposed sale or exchange of land.
