At a recent meeting of the Friends of Midmar Paddock, it was announced that missives are about to be concluded to sell the paddock. A friend called the selling agent and, in response to an enquiry to contact the owner, I understand the selling agent said ‘speak to the new owner’.
I guess the sale might be conditional on receipt of planning permission so watch out for news on this. Having said that, an application might happen tomorrow or two years from now. It is perhaps more likely that a new owner might first challenge the designation of the land as green belt and open space in the consultation on the new City Plan 2030 later this year.
