Oak­lands’ land sales

The Free Press (Corowa) - - FRONT PAGE - BY ROBERT MUIR

At its May meet­ing, coun­cil unan­i­mously en­dorsed a rec­om­men­da­tion from its di­rec­tor fi­nance and or­gan­i­sa­tion de­vel­op­ment, Kim Parker, to ap­prove of the sale of 48 Coreen Street and 77 Milthorpe Street for $14,500 and $12,500 re­spec­tively, less the agent’s com­mis­sion.

“All con­sul­ta­tion was car­ried out by the Urana Shire Coun­cil re­gard­ing the sale of var­i­ous al­lot­ments,” he said.

Coun­cil also unan­i­mously agreed to pro­ceed with the pur­chase of other land in Milthorpe Street from the Oak­lands & Dis­trict Lions Club, for $3,000 plus all dis­burse­ments.

A de­vel­op­ment ap­pli­ca­tion will be pre­pared by coun­cil to de­mol­ish/re­move the dis­used RSL build­ing from this site and con­sol­i­date all al­lot­ments for the Oak­lands RV Park. The ap­pli­ca­tion will be pub­licly ex­hib­ited for de­ter­mi­na­tion of the ap­pli­ca­tion.

“The Oak­lands com­mu­nity has long had as a pri­or­ity, in­clud­ing in coun­cil’s In­te­grated Plans, a car­a­van park to cater for sea­sonal work­ers and tourists,” coun­cil’s In­terim Gen­eral Man­ager Adrian But­ler said.

In mov­ing the mo­tion which was sec­onded by Cr Shaun Whitechurch, Cr Paul Miegel said: “It makes com­mon sense and gives the com­mu­nity con­fi­dence go­ing for­ward.”

Fed­er­a­tion Coun­cil has agreed to sell two blocks of land in Oak­lands, to free up land to al­low de­vel­op­ment and in­ject funds for coun­cil to fund strate­gic com­mu­nity and coun­cil pri­or­i­ties.
