Proposed Road Discontinuance and Sale in Poowong - Part Gardners Lane

There has been a longstanding issue with the location for loading and unloading of cattle to the abattoir's kill room located in Gardner Lane, Poowong. The loading and unloading of cattle occurs partially on public road reserves. This is due to the positioning of the abattoir buildings at 60 Gardner Lane, which has limited any opportunity to construct this loading / unloading space within its boundary.

Council commenced the statutory procedures to discontinue an area of 3430ms of Gardner Lane, Poowong being part of crown allotment 8 Parish of Poowong
