Clr Anthony Mayne has advised that he has now raised a rescission motion at Council so they "can have another look at this significant deal". "I voted against the sale of this land at Tuesday's meeting. You don’t basically double the township of Dalmeny without having a fair dinkum chat with your community," Anthony told The Beagle.
"A decision made 30 years ago will now be imposed on our community who, if Broulee is any guide, will have to accept an urban design that will see significant land clearing."
"Why it was pushed through at one of the last meetings of this current council remains a mystery.
"A rescission motions needs three votes. Three councillors voted against the sale of the land being Clr Mayne, the Mayor, Liz Innes and Clr Pat McGinlay.
It is understood that three separate valuations have been carried out of the land for sale. With the considerable constraints of steep country, heavy timber, riparian corridors and wetlands it is understood that the land might only yield 200 houses from the 414,000 m2. Based on the recent sale price of an adjacent parcel of land to developers it is estimated that Council might be expecting $2 million for the proposed sale.
