597m2 more or less at Mannering and Commerce Streets Tokoroa being Part Lot 126 DP 15561 Computer Freehold Register SA842/300
The reason for this action being taken is that:

The effect of this notice is that on or after the 17th day of June 2023, the Council may apply to the District Court for an order declaring the land to be abandoned land and authorising the Council to sell or lease it in the manner set out in the said Section 77 of the Act.
