Notice of Intention to Sell Council Land - Corner New Street and Henty Highway Portland Document Set ID 2618969

Consultation has concluded. 

Council received no submissions of its intention to sell the land as proposed. Therefore based on the Council resolution from the Council meeting on 24 September 2019, the sale of the land will now proceed.

Purpose

Council is seeking submissions from the community on its intention to sell lots 1 and 2 of TP186692M, corner New Street and Henty Highway in the Parish of Portland (Volume 09087, Folio 110) by private treaty to Lord Buddha Pty Ltd for a sale price at or above market value.

Background

Council has received a request from the adjoining property owner to purchase the two lots.

As part of the alignment of the Henty Highway in the 1970’s a number of smaller allotments were created. On finalisation of the road alignment, titles for a number of smaller irregular parcels were issued to the former Country Roads Board (CRB). A previous owner of the land owned by Lord Buddha Pty Ltd was successful in purchasing all remaining lots from the CRB fronting New Street that could be consolidated on their title. This has left the small irregular shaped land in question still within the ownership of Council with no frontage to New Street and potential access issues.

The size of the land is 162m2.

At the ordinary council meeting on Tuesday 24 September 2019, Council resolved to give public notice of its intention to sell the land to Lord Buddha Pty Ltd for a sale price at or above market value.
