    I think this initiative will be a wonderful asset to Portarlington. Not only will there be retail opportunities, but the facility can be used for out-of-town professionals for conferences during the week and then on the weekends by locals and visitors, utilising the restaurant, bar and accommodation.
    If the surrounds are landscaped appropriately, there should be the opportunity to hold functions such as weddings in the facility and its gardens.
    I have heard the developer present the concept to community on more than one occasion, and completely support this development.

    I think this building does not fit into the street cape of Portarlington. The local residents around the site all single storey houses. It will look like a Horror Storey as you come into Town.

    How can the council approve of a 3+ storey housing on that side of the street??

    I am not against the complex being built but very much against the location at 30 Geelong Rd where they propose to build . This is predominately a residential area the building will be totally inappropriate due to an increase in traffic on what is already a very busy road, noise levels and shade over neighbouring homes

    This development will be very good for Portarlington. We need more motel/hotel accommodation. New businesses provide more local employment and more residential accommodation is also needed. The current buildings that this will replace are all an eyesore and are part of the entrance to the town.
    I support the development

    I do not support the development at this location. It backs directly onto the Portarlington Recreation Reserve and it should not be used as a private entrance to the reserve. It will also impact on the quiet enjoyment that the locals have at the reserve not only due to it becoming a high use area, it will also have a negative visual impact as it will be out of place. I would be concerned that a multi storey building in that location would set an unwanted precedent for other similar developments in the vicinity.
    The developer - who is a local - should have an understanding that multi-storey buildings are more appropriate closer to the town centre, and without impact on the views.

    I absolutely support this project. This will provide business opportunities and facilities for a growing Portarlington, particularly in proximity to the new Panorama development; it will provide tourism options for the area and also accommodation opportunities in a town with limited hotel facilities. This additional hotel accommodation fits in with COGG’s broader plan for the region. I do not have an issue with the size or type of structure given there is existing precedence with the approval of the much larger Qudos building.

    I honestly feel this development is needed in Portarlington, bringing opportunities for local employment, traineeships etc and for visitors providing further accommodation choices and associated retreat / spa and conference amenities.
    I do understand the concerns of some locals (myself being one) in regards to the visual impacts a large modern building may bring to the small town.
    All weighed up, I feel the benefits will be of great benefit to the town and community of Portarlington.
