Brian Murray, on behalf of the Nillumbik Ratepayers Association, asked Council:
‘Friends of Nillumbik have achieved the seemingly impossible by writing to the council on Sunday the 4th July 2010, and council acting on Monday 5 July 2010 to purchase the privately owned Bell Street Land in Eltham. The transaction was concluded the following month when the State Government facilitated the purchase. What was the total amount paid for the land and associated costs?’
Cr Michael Young, Mayor, responded that the Bell Street land was purchased by the State Government. Council has been appointed Committee of Management by the Government. He does not know the purchase price.

Brian Murray, on behalf of Nillumbik Ratepayers Association, asked Council:
‘What total financial cost is there to Council including ongoing maintenance?’
Cr Michael Young, Mayor, responded that ongoing maintenance costs will be determined once the use of the land is decided through a masterplan.
