Leasing Community Land - Lucindale Health Centre

Consultation has concluded


Background

Feedback is sought on:

  • the proposal to extinguish two existing leases and replace with one new lease to the Lucindale Health Centre Trust for the whole of the Community Land located at 22 Musgrave Avenue, Lucindale and known as the Lucindale Health Centre.

The land occupied by the Lucindale Health Centre is owned by Council and classified as Community Land under section 193 of the Local Government Act, 1999. The building is also owned by Council.


Background


Recent history: In 2017, Council was made aware of some minor management issues arising from the current leases at the Lucindale Health Centre and asked to review the lease arrangements.


Current Leases: The entire property, with no defined area, is currently leased to two (2) parties:

  1. South East Regional Community Health Services; and
  2. Dr David Senior

Having two (2) leases over the one property can, and does, create complications.


Lucindale Health Trust: The Lucindale Health Centre Trust was created in 2004. The intent of the Trust was to manage the Health Centre for the benefit of the Lucindale Community. However, this is not documented in the current leases or registered on the Certificate of Title. Therefore, the Trust has no legal capacity in relation to the Health Centre.

Since 2017, there have been many discussions and meetings in relation to the most effective way to manage this asset. It has been determined that giving the Trust the management of the property, as originally intended, will not only create a more effective management model, but will also remove some of the problems of having multiple lessees for the one (1) property.


Proposal: That a lease is established between Council and Lucindale Health Centre Trust for a ten (10) year term, with the right to extend for a further ten (10) years.

The Trust will be responsible for the sub-letting of the building to “providers who are deemed to provide a service that will be of benefit to the health and wellbeing of the Lucindale Community”.

It is a binding condition of the lease that the Trust shall sublet to:

  • South East Regional Community Health Services or a similar government health service provider; and
  • Limestone Coast Health Unit Trust or other General Practitioner Medical Service Provider.

This proposal and draft lease is in line with discussions held with the Lucindale Health Centre Trust.


Why is Council consulting the community?

Before granting a lease or licence for Community Land, under the Local Government Act 1999, Council must consult the community.

All land owned by Council or under a Council's care, control and management is Community Land unless the Council has resolved to exclude the land from classification as Community Land.
