The BOM presently leases an area of about 256 square metres within the parcel of land at the airport owned by Moira Shire for a weather watch radar station.
It has contacted council with the intention to build a new weather station adjacent to the present site and decommission the existing infrastructure.

As part of the ongoing commitment for the Yarrawonga facility the BOM wants to enter into a new 20-year lease with an initial 10-year deal followed by two five-year extensions.
Rental will remain the same and is presently set at $1 per annum.
The council has to advertise its intention to enter into a new lease and hopes to strike a new deal by next month unless any objections to the move are received.
