South-East sea­side surge

The Advertiser - Real Estate - - Coastal Development -

IDYL­LIC coastal re­treats aren’t con­fined to the state’s Fleurieu, Yorke and Eyre penin­su­las.

The state’s South-East is also home to clear waters, sandy beaches and fledg­ling sea­side de­vel­op­ments.

The Cape Jaffa Anchorage ma­rina and French­men’s Bay at Robe are two ex­am­ples of South­East coast res­i­den­tial de­vel­op­ments.

The Cape Jaffa Anchorage was re­cently awarded Level 4 Clean Ma­rina sta­tus, mak­ing it one of a few mari­nas in Aus­tralia to re­ceive the ac­cred­i­ta­tion.

Ma­rina In­dus­try As­so­ci­a­tion of Aus­tralia ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Colin Brans­grove says it is a great achieve­ment for Cape Jaffa Anchorage.

‘‘Mari­nas such as Cape Jaffa Anchorage will now set the lead for oth­ers around the coun­try to fol­low with re­gard to en­vi­ron­men­tal man­age­ment,’’ he says.

The ma­rina will ul­ti­mately com­prise seven con­struc­tion stages with about 600 res­i­den­tial al­lot­ments, 120 ma­rina berths, a tav­ern, shop­ping fa­cil­i­ties and tourist ac­com­mo­da­tion.

At present, Cape Jaffa Anchorage has 40 ma­rina berths and the con­struc­tion of homes is un­der way.

At Robe, the French­men’s Bay de­vel­op­ment is gain­ing mo­men­tum af­ter it stalled for more than 40 years.

The hold­ing in­cludes about 3km of beach frontage and sand dunes on Robe’s Long Beach.

The Robe Coun­cil in re­cent years has pro­posed a con­cept plan for the site fea­tur­ing four clus­ters com­pris­ing 30 al­lot­ments.
