From time to time Council investigates the disposal of Council land that is not required for community use or Council’s operational requirements. Council may also lease land to another organisation who may be better suited to ensuring the land is well used and providing benefit to our community.

We usually sell property on the market through an agent or a public process. Sometimes we sell land directly to a party where there is no other likely purchaser, the purchaser is a public agency or where there is a desired outcome to satisfy development, social or employment objectives. Council is guided by the Disposal of Council Land policy and the Section 178 process under the Local Government Act (1993).
Community consultation is a key part of this process and we ask for public feedback at multiple stages before any decisions are final. Feedback is collected and presented to Council at each stage to provide clarity around the recommendations and help support or inform decision making.

If you are interested, information on proposed land disposals will be posted on Council’s website. You can also register your interest in upcoming land disposals by filling in the form below. We’ll use the details you provide to keep you up to date with upcoming investigations into potential land sales. If you don’t want to register you can follow this project.

  • Council sells land that is not well used, or not of the right size, location or topography for useable open space.  This could be to: 

    • Raise funds to reinvest in new infrastructure such as playgrounds, pathways and toilets. 
    • Reduce the cost of open space services and deliver more services. 
    • Cut unnecessary expenditure on maintenance and security services at vacated sites.

    Council may also lease Council land to another organisation who may be better suited to ensuring the land is well used and providing benefit to our community.
