Land use changes for Ocean View Apartments

By Kevin Kelly

One of the most notable real estate developments in Bunbury South has faced a scheme amendment, which could attract more people to the properties.

The Ocean View Apartments will include a bigger mix of residential and short-stay accommodation after a meeting was held by the City of Bunbury Council.

The 45-unit complex initially had to follow strict guidelines over what the properties could be used for.

A quarter had to have multiple dwelling or unrestricted residential purposes, while the remaining three-quarters were for short stay or tourist accommodation.

However, thanks to these changes a minimum of 14 units will be for motel use and the go ahead has been given to a shop offering convenience goods.

All the other remaining units will be available for short stay or permanent residential use, so good news if you had your sights set on one of these luxury apartments!

Mayor of Bunbury Gary Brennan said: "This amendment represents a greater level of flexibility for landowners and investors in the leasing and use of the units.

"We are pleased to work with the developers to meet the demands for both short and long term accommodation in our city."
