Seymour strategic land purchase to support community use

Meeting future community growth and services needs in Seymour has been supported by Mitchell Shire Council with the purchase of 27 Keith Street.

The site, which has a building in poor condition, is an ideal location for expanding future services to the Seymour community because of its proximity to large areas of existing residential land and the future residential growth areas identified within the Seymour Structure Plan.

It also accessible by public transport as well as significant foot traffic in the area and its proximity to Seymour College and Seymour Sports and Aquatic Centre, are a natural fit for further community use.

Because of the condition of the building, it will be demolished in the coming weeks, with the site landscaped until a future decision is made on a permanent use.

Fences will be installed soon so that demolition works can take place. Council asks that the community stay clear of the area until works have taken place.

“The opportunity to purchase 27 Keith Street in Seymour will have long term benefits for the Seymour community. This strategic land purchase will allow Council to consider a range of community uses for the area,” he said.

“Until we have decided on the long-term use for the area, Council will carry out demolition works and tidy up the area. This will take place in the coming weeks.

“This purchase already supports a significant community precinct within Seymour and with this land now in Council’s hands we are well placed to support future developments that will have direct community impacts.”
