Site of proposed Hub and situated opposite the Granville Station in an area ideal for higher density. A greater yield will allow the Hub to be supported by private uses.

118 Oakes Rd

Old Toongabbie

692m2

6A

IN1

To be sold

Serves no useful purpose as Public Open Space as it is a strip 6.4m wide and over 100m long. It will have greater utility to the adjoining owner and provide capital for Council to invest in a property with a greater return.

401 Old Windsor Rd

Winston Hills also named 55 Ursula St

240m2

2A

R2

To be sold

Small pocket park however also too small for a separate allotment. However more utility to be sold to neighbour at 53 Ursula St whose land area is 556m2.

7 Ronald Ave

Dundas

82m2

2A

R2

To be sold

Proposed in LEP 2008 to join this small parcel to Upjohn Park which is already 14 ha. The owner at 5 Ronald has encroached on the land by building a retaining wall and garden. We recommend that the zoning remain R2.

21A Tucks Rd

Toongabbie

4864m2

6A

R2

To be sold

The land adjoins a gym and squash courts and currently provides parking and has disused tennis courts. If zoned R2 will provide 8 lots for sale.

2 Ursula St

Winston Hills

971m2

2A

R2

To be sold

This parcel is isolated from Bruce Cole Reserve which is a local park of 1.4ha and only 50m away. There is a strong representation in this area of small pocket parks of less than 1000m2 which are costly to maintain and have less utility than local and regional parks. Recommend an R2 zoning to sell the land as a house lot.

819m2

2B

B2

Long term hold

Known as John Carver Reserve on the corner of Victoria Rd and Park St and surrounding private ownerships with B1 zoning.

This site is ideal for an Enterprise Corridor zone as it fronts a major arterial road and has the potential to provide a long term income stream for Council.

The developments and sales will most likely be over a 10 year period subject to market conditions. Morton Street has not been included as it will be replaced with a new asset and so the net effect will be similar. The majority of the properties to be sold can be implemented without further intervention apart from the rezoning and reclassification. The development timetable will be developed with costings and realisable values which will be the subject of a further report to Council.
