9. The government's policy for disposing of surplus buildings varies depending upon whether or not the land on which the buildings are located is also declared surplus. If buildings and land are being declared surplus, bids are invited for their purchase. If, on the other hand, the crown wishes to retain the land for other purposes, bids are invited covering the demolition and removal of the surplus buildings, and restoration of the site. This was the policy followed in the case of the national defence buildings at Carling Heights, Wolseley barracks, London, Ontario.
