Update 26 October 2021: Following a four week consultation process with the community and traders, Bayside City Council decided to sell a small piece of land (102m2) located at 126 Carpenter Street in Brighton to the adjoining owner of 124 Carpenter Street, Brighton for $300,000 plus gst.

The subject land previously formed part of William Street and since 1971 has been utilised as a car park/loading bay by Monkhouse and Son at the adjoining premises at 124 Carpenter Street, Brighton. The business requires the subject land to maintain the ongoing operation of its activities. The car park was operating under a Licence Agreement with Bayside City Council and this licence expired in March 2021.

124 Carpenter Street, Brighton was later purchased by Environmental Funerals Pty Ltd who has since expressed an interest in purchasing the subject property rather than entering into a new Licence Agreement with Bayside City Council. The licence fee for the subject land is currently $8,717 per annum.

The land contains an underground sewerage easement that would need to continue to be accessed by South East Water following the sale.

Council asked the community what they thought about the proposed sale. This feedback has been compiled into a Community Engagement Summary report and was presented to Council for their consideration at the Council meeting on 26 October 2021.

Legislation has recently changed. Under the new Local Government Act 2020, Council is required to undertake a community engagement process on a proposed sale of Council-owned land in accordance with its Community and Stakeholder Engagement Policy 2021.

This requirement replaces the formal Section 223 process required under the Local Government Act 1989 and is designed to strengthen community involvement in decision-making, and trust and confidence in Council to make evidence-based decisions that benefit the Bayside community through the consistent application of a transparent process.
