A parcel of Butler Street land in Byron’s CBD, managed by Transport for NSW on behalf of the NSW government, is up for sale.
While the blurb on www.ciaustralia.com.au says the property is zoned R2 Low Density Residential and comprises a 373sqm prime vacant, there is no mention of the slated bypass.
An online auction is planned at auctionworksonline.net.au on May 7 at 11am.
Additionally, lot 11 Milton Street in Byron Bay is also being sold, which is located next to the disused railway near Belongil Beach.
Without road access
Yet the 373 sqm land comes without access to the property from a public road.
There is ‘no right of way over any of the land fronting Shirley or Milton Streets’.
The tender process will close at 4pm on May 6.
The sale follows other planned auctions for three large railway lands in Lismore, which was highlighted by NSW Labor recently.
NSW Labor MLC Walt Secord says, ‘Since April 2011, the state Liberals and Nationals have overseen the sell-off of $70b worth of public assets’.
Sell off of public assets $70b: Labor
‘This is astounding – and a betrayal’, Mr Secord said.
He claims the following has been sold off: ‘Electricity generators, power stations and poles and wires; buses and ferry services; the Land Titles Office; major ports; water infrastructure; TAFE campuses; and The Northern Beaches Hospital.’
