Malabar Range – Closure

| June 20, 2011 | 7 Comments

Unfortunately this is not new news, but it has also not made it into the media as much as we would all prefer.

The Federal Minister for Finance has issued eviction notices for the majority of users at the Malabar range site in Sydney.  These notices take effect on 31 October 2011.

The reason given is asbestos buried by the government in the 1940′s.

I’m sure the eviction orders have nothing to do with the estimated $2.5 BILLION the land is worth.  It’s not like a couple of BILLION dollars will help the Labour government move back into the black quicker…..on hang on, it will.  Whilst the government says that there are no plans to sell the land, I’m not convinced.

    I’ve already signed the protest, even though I’ve never been to the range or reside in NSW.

    Just what is the government claiming they are going to do with the land? If you’re evicting someone you must have a plan for the land, and it should be a matter of public interest for the government to declare that.

    As above not a resident of N.S.W. but have signed the protest need to ensure that these places stay open not close

    If you are taking up estate agents franchise, you must look into the work experience of the letting agents
    firm that is offering the lettings franchise. This thirty second answer
    will prove to be helpful at an open house, a social
    gathering, answering a floor call, responding to an email, responding
    to a sign-call, meeting a come-show-me request at one of your
    listings or the first time you meet any none-contracted buyer.
    When you start your real estate career, immediately notify everyone you
    know that you now have the capability to assist them with their real
    estate needs.

  7. Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess
    I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying
    your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the

    for newbie blog writers? I’d genuinely appreciate it.
