Council is inviting feedback on a proposal to discontinue a parcel of road reserve on Hay Avenue Cobram which is not being used by Council. 

Council received a request from the adjoining landowner in 2019 to purchase a portion of the unused road reserve to realign their property title to match existing fence lines and allow vehicle access to their property via Hay Avenue Cobram.

It was resolved by Council to discontinue and sell this unused road reserve in April 2019, however there is another small parcel of road reserve within this land that requires to be discontinued to complete the proposal (shown in the map above). 

Council is conducting consultation on this proposal in accordance with Section 223 of the Local Government Act 1989 and Section 12 of the Road Management Act 2004

The community feedback period closed on 22 July 2022. No submissions have been received.

At its Ordinary Meeting on 17 April 2019 Council resolved to discontinue the road reserve alongside Hay Avenue Cobram following community consultation, and authorised the Chief Executive Officer to sell the land to the adjoining landholder and to complete the associated contractual and administrative processes.

In order to finalise the consolidation of the parcel of land previously discontinued, it has come to our attention that the hatched parcel of land below remains a road reserve and also needs to be discontinued in order to realign the boundaries to create the triangle shaped parcel of land to be sold (shown below).
