855. Hon TIM CLIFFORD to the minister representing the
Minister for Planning:
I refer to question without notice
787 regarding Tuohy Gardens in Midland and I would like to seek some further
clarification on the response provided.
(1) Why has Tuohy
Gardens been fenced off and unused for 17 years?
(2) Will the
minister please provide the reasons for the timing of the sale of Tuohy
Gardens; and is there a business case or rationale to support this decision?
STEPHEN DAWSON replied:
I thank the honourable member for
some notice of the question.
(1) Lots 9005 and
9015 Great Eastern Highway in Midland, formerly known as Tuohy Gardens, are
fenced to ensure site security and safety.
(2) Under the
Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority's ''Midland Master Plan'',
lots 9005 and 9015 were identified for mixed-use development. The MRA has
progressively sold various land parcels over the years and has determined that
it is appropriate for this site to be put to market.
