Beach de­vel­op­ment planned

South Western Times - - News -

The lat­est deal was struck with a lo­cal fam­ily who Mr Bren­nan de­scribed as “highly-re­spected” and who had come up with a “re­ally ap­peal­ing con­cept de­vel­op­ment”.

“I’m con­fi­dent it will go ahead, know­ing the fam­ily and com­mit­ment they have and that will be the bench­mark and en­cour­age oth­ers to se­ri­ously look at that area for de­vel­op­ment,” Mr Bren­nan said.

The fam­ily was con­tacted by the South Western Times, but de­clined to make a com­ment.

The deal is sub­ject to meet­ing “mile­stones” and be­ing com­pleted within three years.

“What we didn’t want was to sell the land and have peo­ple land bank it,” Mr Bren­nan said.

“We wanted to sell the land and see it de­vel­oped and oc­cur within a rea­son­able pe­riod of time.”

Mr Bren­nan did not want to re­veal too much de­tail around the plans, but said it in­cluded short-term as well as per­ma­nent ac­com­mo­da­tion, re­tail and com­mer­cial.

“(It’s) a mix of use which is just what we want to see there,” he said.

“It also adds an­other rea­son for peo­ple to come and visit Bun­bury.”
