Mowbray College in Melbourne's west listed for sale

The receivers of Mowbray College, a private school in Melbourne’s west that entered into voluntary administration last month with debts of $18 million, have listed the three campuses for sale.

Sal Algeri of Deloitte has appointed Fitzroys, in conjunction with CBRE, to sell the school's three campuses.

David Bourke of Fitzroys says the three campuses had extensive improvements that could be adapted for community and immediate educational uses.

In a bid to protect the properties from residential developers, Melton councillors unanimously passed a motion to change the Patterson campus from Residential 1 to Special Use zone for educational purposes.

 The expressions-of-interest campaign closes on September 14.
