Have your say on proposal to purchase Tawonga Scout Hall
ALPINE Shire Council is considering the purchase of the Tawonga Scout Hall and is seeking community feedback.
The property, at 43 Kiewa Valley Highway, Tawonga, has been owned by The Scout Association of Australia since 1972.
Alpine Shire Council acting director corporate performance, Will Jeremy, said council was notified that the association is considering selling the site last month.
“The hall and land is a valuable community asset, and one that has a lot of potential being centrally located in Tawonga, next to the Tawonga Pioneer Memorial Park,” he said.
“In March 2017 the Tawonga Scout Hall was inspected and significant issues were identified across the building.
“In a further inspection carried out in November 2020 it was reported that the building cannot be used for any purpose, including accommodation, due to its condition and lack of facilities.”
The market value of the land will be established by a suitably qualified and experienced land valuer before a decision is made.
Mr Jeremy encouraged community members with an interest in the future of the site to contact council to have their say.
“If you’re a Kiewa Valley resident, we’d love to hear what you think, to ensure the final decision is reflective of community needs and aspirations,” he said.
To provide feedback, email firstname.lastname@example.org. au or post to submissions, PO Box 139 BRIGHT VIC 3741.
Submissions close 3pm on August 18.
