Following last week’s Ordinary Meeting of Hepburn Shire Council, it was decided that the site of the former school in Campbelltown will be prepared for sale.
Councillors approved commencing the process to sell the site, on the corner of Barry Street and Wilkinson Street, with Council advertising its intention to sell the land by a public process.
CEO Evan King said the former Shire of Creswick bought the site from the State Government in 1989 for $5000 on behalf of the community.
“The original intention back when the site was bought by the former Council was to transfer the title to a community committee,” Mr Evan said.
“That never eventuated so the community has now approached us to consider selling it.
“Council has no need for the land so we will now follow the statutory process to get the site ready for sale.”
Mr King added as Campbelltown was a small locality, Council officers will contact residents regarding the sale to seek submissions. Any submissions received will go before Council who will make the ultimate decision whether to sell the site.
