Hibiscus Coast RSA gets relief with land sale

The cash-strapped Hibiscus Coast Community Returned Services’ Association (RSA) has sold a 5200m² vacant section for $1.5 million to a local property developer who plans to build townhouse units on it.

The club bought the land at 20 Melia Place, Stanmore Bay, 100m west of the RSA site at 43A Vipond Rd, 25 years ago for $90,000, intending to develop residential units which would then be rented to RSA members, but financial constraints meant the project was never realised.

Club president Frank Coggan said today: “We’re fortunate to have had the option of selling a portion of the club’s investment portfolio, and the proceeds from the sale will be put directly back into updating the club’s facilities.”
