Ashburton District Council has agreed to a further extension on the purchase of Lot 9 at the Ashburton Business Estate until 30 September, 2016.
Ashburton District Mayor Angus McKay says the extension was approved to allow the prospective purchaser to formalise arrangements for moving the railway shunting yards from the centre of town to the Ashburton Business Estate.
Following discussions with KiwiRail, the prospective purchaser has outlined their desire to purchase the balance of Lot 8 and Lot 7 (land set aside for railway development), to carry out the necessary rail infrastructure work at their expense.
