Land Sale a Done Deal
22 MAR 11 @
5:30PM BY JOHN MORCOMBE
PITTWATER Council and Pittwater MP Rob Stokes believe the purchase of
Currawong by the State Government last week will proceed, despite the
director-general of the Premier’s Department saying that he will
conduct an internal inquiry into the deal.
The investigation is being conducted into Lands Department chief
executive Warwick Watkins for agreeing to purchase Currawong while the
government is in caretaker mode ahead of Saturday’s election.
It has been reported that Mr Watkins went beyond his brief by approving
the exchange of contracts last week.
The purchase of Currawong from Eco Villages for $12.2 million is due to
be settled on April 6.
Pittwater Council general manager Mark Ferguson said that, to his
knowledge, the sale stands unless the premier rescinds the contract
between now and April 6, which he said was highly unlikely.
“Our understanding is that the sale was executed legally by the
government,” he said.
“The council has been in discussions with various ministers over the
years and there has been no real opposition by any state Ministers to
“The price the Government paid for the site was fair, and it’s a good
deal for the Government, the council and the community.
“This deal is above politics.”
Mr Stokes said he couldn’t comment on the process due to a possible
investigation by the ICAC but believes it should proceed.
“From my understanding, it’s been bought and it remains my position
that it should be acquired for the benefit of the community,” Mr Stokes
Opposition financial management spokesman Greg Pearce said the
Coalition ``strongly supports the return of Currawong to public
ownership’’ but is concerned about the process by which that has
occurred and supports an independent investigation by the
director-general of the Premier’s Department and Cabinet.
