Leeton Shire announces industrial estate expansion

Leeton Shire Council has announced an expansion of Vance Industrial Estate.

Council says planning for the estate is currently being finalised, with construction to commence in the coming months, with the estate to be completed early next year.

Council’s Economic and Strategic Development Manager, Michelle Evans said a key goal of Vance Estate Stage 3 was the development and/or expansion of businesses in Leeton.

“This expansion is an exciting development and Council has already received several enquiries from prospective businesses looking to expand or move to the area. 20 lots will be available for sale,” said Ms Evans.

To help businesses to establish themselves, development rebates of up to 5% of the purchase price to a maximum of $20,000 (excluding GST) will be available on allotments purchased and finalised prior to 31 January 2024, where construction has commenced within 24 months of the purchase date of the allotment, she said.

Following a tender process undertaken in March this year, Council appointed QPL Rural Real Estate as the sole agents for marketing and sale of lots.

Council thanked the Australian Government for its $1.24 million funding contribution towards the Vance Estate expansion under the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure (LRCI) Program.

The LRCI program supports local councils to deliver priority local road and community infrastructure projects across Australia, supporting jobs and the resilience of local economies to help communities bounce back from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Allotments are now available for purchase. All enquiries should be directed to Andrew Pellow (M: 0488 226 135) or Craig Tyrrell (0473 748 272) at QPL Rural Real Estate, Leeton.
