Senator Siewert asked the Minister representing the Minister for Defence, upon notice, on 28 September 2010: With reference to the land bounded by Vale Road, Adelaide Street and Abernethy Road in Hazelmere, Western Australia, is the Minister aware of any plans to develop this land; if so:
(a) who has made the applications; and
(b) what is the nature of the applications.
Senator Chris Evans—The Minister for Defence has provided the following answer to the honourable senator’s question:
(a) and (b) I am not aware of any former Defence land that matches the street description outlined in the Senator’s question. The Senator may be referring to the sale of part of the former Bushmead Rifle Range which is located at the corner of Midland Road and Sadler Drive Hazelmere. The property was sold in May 2010 to Dunland Property. Settlement occurred on 6 July 2010. Development of that land and any related development applications are matters for the new owners and local and state governments.
