The process for approving the sale of the buildings began on the 14 June 2018, when Council approved the Business Case for the Cultural and Civic Space – a key part of which was to sell the buildings as part of the funding model for the project.
In July 2019 Council authorised the sale of four Council properties as part of the motion to progress the Cultural and Civic Space Project.
The buildings will not be needed once the Cultural and Civic Space is built and the proceeds from the sale of the buildings form an important component of the funding strategy of the new building.
