Bass Coast Health Report Withdrawn

A report regarding the lease of land to Bass Coast Health has been withdrawn by Bass Coast Shire Council from the agenda for the upcoming Ordinary Meeting.

Council CEO, Paul Buckley, said Council had yet to receive clarification of the negotiations regarding the use of the $2.5 million offered by Minister Greg Hunt for health services on Phillip Island.

At its meeting on 18 February 2015, Council deferred a decision in relation to the proposed lease pending “advice from Bass Coast Health in relation to future plans for expanding services on the site and clarification of the negotiations regarding the use of the $2.5 million offered by Minster Greg Hunt for health services on Phillip Island”.

Bass Coast Health has provided additional information, however Council is yet to receive advice from the State Health Minister and/or Department in relation to the $2.5 million.

Mr Buckley said once confirmation was received, the report would be represented to Council.
