Register of Surplus Commonwealth Land Potentially Suitable for Housing and Community Outcomes
This register contains details of surplus Commonwealth land considered potentially suitable for housing and community outcomes. It is not a full list of surplus Commonwealth land holdings.
At the time of publication, properties on this register are considered by the Commonwealth to be surplus to its requirements and potentially suitable for housing and community outcomes (consistent with the Commonwealth Property Disposals Policy revised as at 25 February 2009).
The register contains details on the owner agency, location and size of each property, as well as the target time (financial year) for release. The target time for release is indicative only and may be subject to change at any time.
While the Department of Finance considers the register to be accurate at the time of publication, changes in circumstances after the time of publication may impact on the accuracy of the register. Details in the register may be amended without notice at any time and from time to time after publication.
Finance recommends that users exercise their own care with respect to ensuring details on the register are up to date by checking the register regularly for any updated information, or alternatively, contacting Finance (see Contact Officers).
Consistent with the Commonwealth Property Disposals Policy, not all land included on the register will be made available on the open market, some sites may be disposed by way of priority sale, should that approach optimise the Australian Government’s objectives.
