Council reopens Boyd tender

Council reopens Boyd tender Image

The City of Melbourne officially put the site behind the Boyd Community Hub back on the open market last month, with submissions open to developers until October 19.

After its previous arrangement for a mixed-use development and a new park fell through with developer Cairo Melbourne in June, council is seeking a new development partner for the project.

Council’s Submissions Committee will meet on November 2 to consider the submissions and anyone can make a written submission and be entitled to appear in person at the committee meeting.

A report will then be prepared, which will then go to council for decision.

As part of the new agreement, the City of Melbourne has changed the boundary of the private development site to increase the setback from City Rd to allow for more space for the community.

A council spokesperson said council intended to undertake community engagement on the draft concept for the new park between now and the end of November.

Demolition of the old school building, which sits on the site of the new park, is planned for the first week of May, 2018.
