A BID to develop more accommodation for holidaymakers in Port Campbell is expected to come before Corangamite Shire Council in the coming weeks.
Port Campbell surf lifesaver Phillip Younis is looking to transform a vacant block behind Grassroots Deli Cafe in Lord Street into three units with the vision of creating more visitor stay opportunities in the region.
"The plan if the application is accepted is to accommodate visitors in Port Campbell," he said.
"There's a space there that needs something done with it and it lends itself to such a project as the block extends back further than most.
"The cafe would keep operating, creating a good link between the accommodation and food services available there."
The $950,000 proposal looks to construct two units with two bedrooms and a single one-bedroom unit, each with carports.
The application comes amid a shakeup of the town layout, as council draft another plan to reinvigorate Port Campbell's streetscape to be more visitor-friendly.
Mr Younis said the community was largely supportive of the plan.
"There's some really good things in the plan they've put forward, I think they just need to get it staged and costed, then they can tweak some of the smaller things," he said.
"Everyone is going to have different opinions but I think everyone's keen to see some improvement - it's pretty well accepted that there needs to be change."
