Question Without Notice No. 529 asked in the Legislative Council on 27 June 2018 by Hon Dr Steve Thomas

Minister responding: Hon A. MacTiernan
Parliament: 40 Session: 1
Answered on

      529. Hon Dr STEVE THOMAS to the Minister for Agriculture and Food:
I refer to the existing the Boyanup saleyards and this year's Legislative Assembly's budget estimates in which it was suggested —
      � the land in question at Boyanup is a crown grant in trust to the Shire of Capel for the purposes of a saleyard.
      (1) If the saleyards were to be removed, would ownership of the land revert to the Shire of Capel or the state?
(2) Does the grant in trust for the purposes of a saleyard have a time limit?
      (1)–(2) No, there is no time limit on that and the land remains in state ownership. Obviously, we would be happy to work through a negotiated outcome with the shire, and the shire wants to do some residential development on that land when we can find a satisfactory resolution on an alternative site.
