Residents Invited To Have Say On Property Sales

Residents are invited to provide feedback about properties identified for potential sale as part of Council’s Land Sales Strategy.

At last week’s meeting, Council resolved to sell nine properties of land immediately and proceed with the investigation of another 15 properties that could include rezoning or reclassification to enable their sale to assist with the current financial situation.

All properties identified for potential sale are considered as underutilised and surplus to the needs of the Council and community, based on its current and potential use.

“We are eager to hear from residents about any of the properties listed for potential sale to assist in the investigative work that’s being done to determine if they are suitable for sale,” said Mayor Amanda Findley.

“While some properties endorsed by the Council will be placed on the market soon, others could take months or years to go through the necessary review process before they can be progressed any further,” Cr Findley said.

Information about the property sales program is on the Shoalhaven Get Involved website and includes an interactive map of the properties for sale and those to be further investigated and potentially rezoned or reclassified to enable sale. It also includes land suitable for future strategic land use and maintained by Council.

Land valuations will be done by professional Property Valuers and property sales will be managed by independent real estate agents who will engage in a competitive sales campaign to ensure the best sale price.

The website will be updated with decisions of Council to sell or retain properties as well as any additional properties identified for sale in the future.

Feedback can be provided to Council via the Shoalhaven Get Involved website.
