A NEW housing subdivision overlooking Logans Beach, Warrnambool has moved closer to reality with the city council unanimously endorsing development plans.
The Logans Beach Coastal Village will provide about 100 lots on former farm land south of Hopkins Point Road.
Lots will be a mixture of larger allotments with a minimum 2000-square-metre blocks and smaller sizes ranging from 400-1000 square metres.
Building height will be restricted to five metres and tree height to three metres to ensure coastal views.
The subdivision forms part of a larger growth area covering 119 hectares on the north and south of the Hopkins Point Road.
At this month’s council meeting Cr Rob Askew said the village plan had been well thought out.
Cr Peter Hulin said it would attract retirees from Melbourne.
He said he was intrigued by sections in the planning report which listed marram grass and coastal tea-tree as prohibited species and said native vegetation could be “trimmed, lopped or removed” to develop the proposed pedestrian path and fencing.
“It’s a pity we can’t do the same at McGennan car park,” Cr Hulin said.
