Proposed discontinuance and sale of road reserve - Hay Avenue Cobram

Feedback has now closed 

Council is seeking feedback on a proposal to discontinue a road reserve alongside Hay Avenue, Cobram and sell a portion of land to the adjoining land owner (area shown on the below maps).

The process for council to discontinue a road is defined in section 12 of the Road Management Act 2004 and Schedule 10 Clause 3 of the Local Government Act 1989. Subsequent to the discontinuance, the land may be sold in accordance with Section 189 of the Local Government Act 1989.

The proposal involves:

  • Discontinuing the road reserve.
  • Realignment of boundaries to create the triangle shaped parcel of land.
  • Council obtaining an independent valuation of the triangle shaped parcel of land no more than 6 months prior to the sale.
  • The sale of the triangle shaped parcel of land by private treaty to the adjoining landowner to consolidate with the parcel of land to the north at 11-13 William Street.
  • Consolidating the remaining portion of the road reserve (white rectangle) to Moira Shire’s Maternal and Child Health Centre site.
