The City of Bayswater has received three expressions of interest for the long-term lease of Mertome Village. The potential retirement village and aged care operators are:

  • Hall & Prior Group and Heathley
  • Lester Group and Amanda Living
  • Churchlands Holdings Pty Ltd.

The expressions of interest were sought from suitably qualified operators for the lease of Mertome land and the sale of the business and related assets. This would allow for the redevelopment of Mertome village to meet the needs of residents. The City is commited to ensuring a good outcome for residents, whose rights are protected under a range of legislation including the Retirement Village Act 1992.

The City’s Council has resolved to seek a final bid from Hall & Prior Group. They are the preferred candidate for the lease, as they are financially secure and have a clear vision for the future of Mertome.


Mertome Retirement Village in Bayswater was built in the early 1970s. The village is considered the first Council provided aged care service. The project was driven by a City of Bayswater Councillor, for whom the village is named after.

The site currently contains 102 independent living units and a 70 bed residential aged care facility. Despite Mertome Village undergoing several refurbishment throughout the years, it has now reached the end of it’s operating life.
