Dozens of objections to two large-scale apartment developments in Warrnambool will mean their fate will be decided by city councillors.
There were 18 objections to a 93-apartment complex on Mortlake Road with concerns raised about traffic, privacy, the density of the development and its design.
Six objections were received for a 74-apartment development on Dales Road that would feature a medical centre.
Objectors to that development raised concerns about traffic, density, privacy, design and the medical centre.
With both proposals drawing more than five objections, the applications will go before a future council meeting for councillors to vote on but no date has been set.
The $9 million three-storey residential village next to the fire station, which had applied to the council for a planning permit, features a medical centre and two food outlets.
Houses have already been demolished to make way for the development if it is approved after the council gave it permission to clear the site.
Developer Mark Schneider, of Mortlake Road Pty Ltd, said the development aimed to meet the needs of one and two person households.
The development will also include a children's playground, grassed village square and an enclosed community produce garden.
A community hub with a meeting room and consulting suites will be available for visiting professionals such as financial advisers, occupational therapists, beauticians, or for use by social clubs.
The proposed two and three-storey development on the corner of Dales and Aberline Road will consist of one and two-bedroom townhouse-style apartments to fill what the developer says is a gap in the higher density market.
The complex, called Gateway Apartments, would also include a playground, communal garden and a medical centre with eight consulting suites and a pathology room.
The company behind the project, Reid Developments, said the area's demographics and future demand called for diversity in housing including low maintenance smaller lots and accessible housing.
A development plan was submitted to the council with adjusted plans after the original proposal attracted a petition signed by 24 objectors concerned by the size of the project and increased traffic on an already busy intersection.
Councillor Mike Neoh said newest plans for the complex had been scaled down with the number of apartments on the site reduced and onsite car parks increased.
