Ballarat East Res 1
A lovely block of land in Wilson Street (619) has recently been sold. We ask all the neighbours there to keep an eye on the place. The Real Estate Agent highlighted subdivision and the land being zoned residential 1 ( you can build pretty much about anything) as main selling points.
So what does the local community see as main selling points – lovely rolling hills, lots of trees, quiet, farm-like, post & rail, rural, transition area between the city and the Canadian State Forest etc etc. Some of the land appears to be a swamp or swamp like and developing land such as that has seen so many issues in the past.
While residents understand the land will be developed and cannot remain as farm-land (unless someone is willing to buy and maintain it), we do however have high expectations that the new owners will want to talk with the local community about whats best for our area and sustainable development. We are happy to talk new owners, if that’s you please post to the community here by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
In the meantime can residents please be proactive and keep an eye over this block. The land, arguably one of a few large pieces in East Ballarat could easily be carved up into tiny pieces with the resultant little boxes all perfectly neat and identical being the outcome.
How do we have our say to the real estate agents that continue to target developers and land for subdivision? They have a responsibility to act reasonably and encourage all buyers. This particular Real estate agents’ email address is email@example.com.
