Project update

We seek your feedback on our proposal to sell 2 Council properties that have been declared as surplus. Your feedback will help guide Council's decision.

Both properties are former locations for our Family and Children’s facilities and services. The addresses are:

  • 27 Tyner Rd, Wantirna South
  • 276 Wantirna Road, Wantirna

Council is proposing to sell the 2 properties for the following reasons:

  • they are surplus properties
  • to recoup the costs for the development of the Bayswater and Wantirna Children and Family Centres
  • because retaining these properties will result in significant costs to upgrade and maintain under our Sustainable Building and Infrastructure Policy

We are undertaking a statutory process and seek community feedback on this proposal following the Local Government Act 2020.

Future use and development of these sites will be guided by the Knox Housing Strategy, along with the underlying residential zoning that applies to each site. The site at 27 Tyner Rd, Wantirna South is currently included within a Knox Neighbourhood area (under the Neighbourhood Residential Zone – Schedule 4), and 276 Wantirna Rd, Wantirna is designated as an Activity Area (under the Residential Growth Zone – Schedule 1). Design guidance for the different residential areas can be found within the Knox Residential Design Guidelines.

Next steps

After community consultation has closed, Council will consider all submissions when making the decision at a future Council meeting.

If the decision is to sell the properties, the properties will be listed for sale and go through a public auction process.
