Sale of the land at Bellfield progressed in 2020 through two staged campaigns:
- an initial Expression of Interest (EoI) marketing campaign; and
- Request for Proposal (RfP) from shortlisted respondents following the EoI stage.
The Evaluation Panel assessed all submissions against Council approved selection criteria and decided on a preferred developer - Glenvill Developments.
On 14 December 2020, Council resolved to sell the land to the Glenvill Development. Glenvill has lodged a amended planning application and this currently under review by Council's Planning Department.
The Bellfield project is a high priority for Council. Despite COVID 19, there is a growing demand for market housing in optimal locations such as Bellfield. The building construction industry plays a critical role in economic recovery. Development of the land at Bellfield will provide crucial employment to hundreds of people and provide economic stimulus to the local Bellfield/Heidelberg West community.
