Depot land purchased
Bass Coast Shire Council has purchased the land at 7-9 Loughran Drive in Wonthaggi for the continuation of its Depot operations.
As a result of the property being placed on the market by the owner, Council made the decision to purchase the land at its closed meeting on 20 February 2019.Â
Council's Property Strategy has a principle that 'Council will own land where that land will contribute directly to the current service delivery outcomes of Council'.
Council has had a long term lease on 7-9 Loughran Drive, however as the Depot is a key service of Council, it was appropriate to consider the purchase of this site.
Council will use unallocated funds from 2017/18 budget surplus to purchase the property for $629,000.
