The Board has received an application to transfer Perpetual Lease 1993/02 from Craig Thompson and Elizabeth Pittar by way of sale to James McFadyen and Rachael McFadyen.
The proposed transferees are not Islanders within the meaning of the Lord Howe Island Act 1953 (the Act) and the Board is required under the Act to satisfy itself that there is no Islander who desires, and is in a position, to take up the Lease.
Any Islander who desires, and is in a position to take up the lease should lodge a written submission clearly showing the application is in a position to take up the transfer.
The market value as determined under Section 23(1) of the Act will be notified upon personal application by an eligible Islander. Islanders wishing to lodge claims should do so no later than 4:30pm on 7 February 2014.
