Land exchange - Aranmore Catholic Primary School

The City of Vincent and the Sisters of Mercy have come to an in principle agreement to exchange land around Aranmore Catholic Primary School to better align land ownership and create clearer boundaries between City land and school land.

Currently the school playgrounds and kindergarten are located on land owned by the City of Vincent and a section of land in the Brentham Street Reserve is owned by the Sisters of Mercy. The purpose of the proposal is to exchange equal portions of land to reflect how the school and the community currently use the land.

The proposed exchange equally benefits both the school and the Vincent community and ensures we can better plan for the future. If all proceeds successfully it is anticipated the exchange could occur in 2020.

The land exchanged would be a 1,761m2 portion of Lot 100 (No. 20) Brentham Street, Leederville, and Lot 37 Brentham Street, Leederville (area of 539m2), for an equal portion (2,300m2) of Lot 75 Brentham Street, Leederville (Brentham Street Reserve).

Because it is an equal exchange of land, no payments would be made to either the Sisters of Mercy (who own the land on which the school is built) or the City.

The land exchange plan and proposed future use of lots 37, 75 & 100 Brentham Street can be viewed from the document library.
