All Victorian alpine resorts are Crown land permanently reserved under Section 4 (1) of the Crown Land (Reserves) Act 1978. Leases grant tenants exclusive right to occupy the land.
The leasing of Crown land is governed by the Alpine Resorts Leasing Policy (30 March 2002) which establishes a set of overarching principles around public benefit, ecological sustainability, consistency and transparency. The policy can be accessed here.
The Mt Buller Mt Stirling Resort Management Board has developed the Property Leasing Procedure to ensure a consistent approach is taken to implementing the policy and determining lease terms. The Property and Leasing Procedure can be accessed here.
Lease Renewal Process
Negotiating a new lease can take some time as the approval process involves a number of steps. If the new lease isn’t finalised before the existing lease expires, over-holding provisions apply to ensure tenure continuity.
We recommend lessees initiate the lease renewal process one to two years before the lease expiry date. However, lessees can surrender their existing lease and enter into negotiations with the Board for a new lease at any time, if they want to.
To commence the new lease process, lessees are asked to complete the New Lease Application Form which can be accessed here.
The Resort Management Board works collaboratively with lessees to help them secure the longest lease term possible in accordance with the Alpine Leasing Policy and Property and Leasing Procedure.
If you have any questions about leasing, please contact Amanda Vogt, Manager of Property and Contracts on Amanda.email@example.com.
