There are plans for a new 37-block housing estate in Woodford while another on Warrnambool's Wollaston Road is set to get a rejig.
A development plan has been prepared for an estate on Bridge Road in Woodford which is expected to be rolled out in two stages.
The first stage will include 19 blocks which will be accessed by a gateway entrance, and stage two would include a barbecue area and rotunda set among another 18 blocks.
The development, which is bordered by Brodies Lane, will be called Woodford Heights Estate. The development is currently before Warrnambool City Council for consideration.
Meanwhile, councillors this week gave the go-ahead for the Oakwood Riverside estate, off Wollaston Road, to change its plans.
It would mean a change to the order of which stage in the house estate would be sold, as well as adjustments to the road layout within the estate.
"A change in ownership of the Riverside estate has seen minor amendments to the layout and staging of the sub-divison, including stage nine being brought forward to stage 3A to facilitate a separate entry to the estate from Wollaston Road," the council says.
Cr Max Taylor said the Wollaston Road area had "gone ahead in leaps and bounds" over the last decade with many housing estates created.
However, he said the actual road had remained the same for 30 years.
"This road is having a lot more traffic," he said.
There are plans to redesign parts of Wollaston Road and Cr Taylor said he was sure the development plan would provide for much better road management.
