Mawson Section 47 Block 23

(1) The purpose is for a service station.

(2) In 1996 Australian Independent Retailers Pty Ltd (a wholly subsidiary of Woolworths) submitted a proposal to the Government to establish 13 Petrol Plus outlets adjacent to the company's supermarkets in Canberra. After considering the matter the Government agreed to sell the Mawson site by direct grant. This was announced by Government in the media release dated 21 August 1997. The Lessee applied for a direct grant in accordance with Disallowable Instrument No 22 of 1994.

(3) No. The land was sold by direct grant.

Mitchell Section 38 Block 13

(1) The purpose is to use the premises only for the purposes of bulk landscape supplies and garden waste recycling facility;

PROVIDED ALWAYS THAT not less than fifty percent of the block area is used as a garden waste recycling facility.

(2) In 1990, Canberra Sand and Gravel purchased this block by auction for the purposes of storage distribution of soil, sand and gravel, blue metal and other forms of aggregate bagged cement and or lime. The term of the lease was for five years. The restricted term was due to the possibility of the area being used as a road. The road is no longer required and a ninety nine year lease can now be issued.

The Lessee applied for an extended lease term but due to restrictions in the Land Act in relation to the payment for the extension of the term the lease was not extended. The lease expired and the Lessee occupied the block on a quarterly term in accordance with the "continued occupancy clause" in the lease.

The Lessee subsequently applied for the land under Disallowable Instrument No 32 of 1994.

(3) No. The land was sold by direct grant.
