Kiama Council has announced the first part of the tender process for Blue Haven Bonaira has gone live today.
The open selective tender process involves several steps, the first of which is inviting interested parties to put in an Expression of Interest (EOI) to tender for the purchase of Blue Haven Bonaira.
After the EOI has closed, a selection panel will shortlist the top tenderers, who will then be invited to put in their tenders to purchase Blue Haven Bonaira. (see step-by-step guide, below)
The Blue Haven Bonaira site is Lot 2 DP 1215276, 14A Bonaira Street, Kiama.
The site comprises:
• Blue Haven Bonaira 134-bed Residential Aged Care Facility
• 59 Independent Living Units (ILUs)
• Matterson Hall
• Barroul House café
• Chapel, gym and hair salon
• Administration offices for Blue Haven Home Care Services and Blue Haven Transport
The land is zoned low density residential. At Council’s Ordinary meeting on 20 June 2023, elected Councillors voted to reclassify the land from community to operational.
The reclassification of the land means Council can proceed with the divestment of Blue Haven Bonaira, as it resolved to do in October 2022 and confirmed at its extraordinary meeting on February 28, 2023.
Council has stipulated that any sale must be to an approved Aged Care Provider. Further, in the clear acknowledgement of its intention that the operations continue, it has stated the provider needs to operate under the Aged Care Act and Retirement Villages Act.
StewartBrown Advisory have been appointed by Council as the marketing agent for the sale process.
