Win­ter­bourne res­i­dents seek con­veyance

The Woolwich Observer - - NEWS -

Act­ing on a re­quest from some Win­ter­bourne res­i­dents, Wool­wich will look into clos­ing an un­used road al­lowance in or­der to con­vey the land to the ad­ja­cent prop­erty own­ers.

Stephanie Martin and her Al­lan Street neigh­bour Marg Min­is­ter made their pitch to Wool­wich coun­cil­lors meet­ing Mon­day Night, ask­ing for ac­tion on a por­tion of the for­mer Stock Street – long un­used and over­grown – be­tween their prop­er­ties.

That stretch of land has a very steep grade and is un­likely to be ever used as a road­way, they ar­gued, not­ing a sim­i­lar con­veyance was done some years ago on nearby Ged­des Street.

In re­sponse to a ques­tion from Coun. Larry Shantz, di­rec­tor of en­gi­neer­ing and plan­ning Dan Ken­na­ley said the next step will be for plan­ning staff to look at the re­quest to de­cide if con­veyance is ad­vis­able. At that point, the town­ship would have to be­gin the for­mal process of declar­ing the land sur­plus be­fore look­ing at sell­ing the land to the res­i­dents.

He ex­pects to come back with a re­port for the De­cem­ber 12 meet­ing.
