The 21 lots are intended for future residential development and one further lot to be transferred to Council for community open space. Defence intends to market 17 lots onto the open-market in early 2024.

In January 2022, Defence completed all necessary due diligence to address possible alternate uses for the site in accordance with the Commonwealth Property Disposal Policy. No viable alternate use suggestions were made or identified.

Defence is committed to maintaining and preserving the security and integrity of the site until it transitions from Commonwealth ownership.
