As a leading legal firm in the areas of Compulsory Acquisition, we disagree with Mr Hardwick's assertion (in a recent article in the Dandenong Leader - Anxiety over acquisition) that 'Compensation rights are only triggered once the land is formally reserved under the registration'.
The Yan Yean Road duplication has been approved and public acquisition overlays (PAOs) placed over the affected properties.
The compulsory acquisition process may take 5 to 10 years to commence, but landowners have compensation triggers that can apply in the meantime.
If you are affected by a PAO, then contact us to discuss the options available so you can decide whether to take action now or in the future.
As most of our Regional Rail Link clients already know, the contract for works has been awarded to companies John Holland, Abigroup, Coleman Rail, AECOM and GHD.
We understand that Regional Rail Link estimates the first new tracks will be used in early 2016.
A Panel hearing was conducted between 6 and 8 February 2012, listening to the concerns of residents. In the meantime, it is imperative residents and any prospective vendors/purchasers in the area obtain advice about the effect of the proposed Public Acquisition Overlay for the Yan Yean Road duplication.
VicRoads published the panel report on its website.
While waiting for a panel decision concerning the duplication of Yan Yean Rd, some residents note the inequity surrounding the planning process and subdivision rights.
See the attached article and call us if you want advice.
As our clients including so many local residents are well aware, a panel hearing was conducted in early February in relation to the proposed Yan Yean Road Duplication.
Recent media coverage refers to that panel hearing and the possible impact on local residents as well as the local fire station. You may wish to review the following two articles:
Construction of the Macarthur Wind Farm and Tarrone Gas Station / Pipeline is underway which means the compulsory acqusition of land is well progressed. For information and advice, contact compulsory acquisition lawyers at Aitken Partners.
- Compulsory acquisitions at Walker and Thomas Streets, Dandenong, have caused loss to businesses and individuals alike.
A panel hearing is scheduled for 6, 7 and 8 February 2012 with regards to the Yan Yean Road Duplication.
The determination of the panel will influence the future plans of the project.
If you have any queries or concerns, please do not hesitate to telephone us to discuss.
Michael Dunn, town planner and resident of Yan Yean Road, arranged a meeting at the Plenty Hall on Wednesday 26 October 2011. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss expert reports in relation to the duplication of Yan Yean Road. Additional funds were sought to pay for the required experts and representation at the upcoming panel hearing.
