Coachhouse Marina Resort redevelopment determination hearing Aug 26th

Locals who objected to the re-development of the Coachhouse Marina Resort with aged care, senior's living housing and residential housing in 20 large buildings predominantly 4 and 5 storeys high have received notification of a public meeting where the NSW Government's Southern Regional Planning Panel will determine the application. The public meeting will be held at the Batemans Bay Soildiers Club on Monday 26 August at 1pm.

The Beagle has been advised by a local objector to the project that "many local residents have not received a copy of Council's report to the Southern Regional Planning Panel. We do hope that those residents who have been following the progress of this controversial development turn up, and speak if they wish to do so, at the meeting."  The Planning Panels Secretariat does advise that the relevant documents will be available on the Planning Panels website at least seven days before the meeting.

Those who did wish to speak were required to register by contacting the Planning Panels Secretariat before 4pm Thursday, 22 August 2019 on 02 8217 2060 or via email to
