The Coachhouse Marina Resort is set to be flooded with a sea of grey – if a development application is approved.
Managing director of Global Lifestyle Developments, Brian Brown, said the group had purchased the site under an option which would enable it to develop a “mixed-development, community-based structure”.
“We don’t finalise until our development application has been approved,” he said.
“We proposed 210 apartments for senior living, 128 apartments for residential living and a 150-bed aged care center, as well as a wellness centre with semi-medical centre.
“We want it to be an iconic development for the Bay.”
Mr Brown said the group believed there was a demand for the project.
“Our research has shown there are not many new senior living developments, and that there is a desperate need for new medical services,” he said.
“Our understanding is the hospital is waylaid with people, because GPs are closed, or don’t bulk bill.
“Aged care on the waterfront is unique, and I think an attractive option for residents and their families.”
He said the group proposed to build a boardwalk around the property, providing access to the breakwall and Corrigans Beach.
“People could walk from the centre of Batemans Bay to Corrigans Beach and the facilities at Hanging Rock,” he said.
Mr Brown said the group hoped to hear back from the Joint Regional Planning Panel in March or April this year.
