SOUTH Gippsland Shire Council is proposing to re-align part of Moyes Road, Stony Creek to clarify land boundaries with an adjoining landowner.
The owner of the adjoining property has made improvements on a portion of the road while part of the road was formed on private property.
The adjoining landowner is keen for the process to proceed to clarify these property boundaries.
South Gippsland Shire Council’s Acting Manager Sustainable Communities Geoff McKinnon said the land could be exchanged to rectify the issue.
“As the area of the road being used privately is a government road the changes are subject to Ministerial consent which has been received.
“The pieces of land identified as part of the exchange are of similar value due to their matching size, irregular shape and access.
“Due to these factors the land exchange should be relatively straightforward and will ensure property boundaries are clear for the future,” said the Mr McKinnon.
Submissions can be made in writing to the Chief Executive Officer, Private Bag 4, Leongatha 3953 or via email to [email protected] until 26 September.
Submitters will have the opportunity to speak to their submission at a Special Committee of Council in a closed session. If no public submissions are received the proposal will go ahead with a notice published in the Victorian Government Gazette.
