Land sales program

We regularly review the land we own in Glenorchy to make sure our open spaces are providing value to our community. Sometimes this process will lead us to sell particular assets on the open market. This might be property, land, or an interest in land including easements and reserves for services or rights of way.

We usually sell property on the market through an agent or a public process. Sometimes we sell land directly to a party where there is no other likely purchaser, the purchaser is a public agency or where there is a desired outcome to satisfy development, social or employment objectives. Council is guided by the Disposal of Council Land policy and the Section 178 process under the Local Government Act (1993).

Community consultation is a key part of this process and we ask for public feedback at multiple stages before any decisions are final. Feedback is collected and presented to Council at each stage to provide clarity around the recommendations and help support or inform decision making. Head to our dedicated engagement platform to register for opportunities to have you say – www.letstalk.gcc.tas.gov.au
