COUNCIL SEEKS TO REMOVE STATUS FOR DISUSED BUILDING

Renmark Paringa Council

The Renmark-Paringa council is hopeful they can get approval to sell off now disused McCormick Centre for the environment.  

At last month’s council’s recent meeting councilors passed a month to begin the process to revoke the community land status of the building.

Opened in 2002 at the building was often seen as underutilised, with groups over the years using some parts of the building including the Australian Landscape Trust & Department for Education.

A 15 year operations agreement for the building ended in 2018, with the centre remaining mainly vacant since.

Speaking to the Murray Pioneer Council CEO Tony Siviour said council would next seek community opinion regarding a potential sale of the location.
