GREATER Geelong Council Tuesday night 16 February voted to re-align part of the Ocean Grove-Wallington boundary on the eastern side of Grubb Road, near the Bellarine Highway.
Beangala Ward councillor Jan Farrell said the boundary related to some properties in the Oakdene Estate.
“Due to Ocean Grove’s continued residential growth this area now needs to be changed,” she said.
Cr Farrell said the current boundary could create confusion among property owners and emergency services, as to which side a property was on.
“In some instances we have a situation where part of a property could be in Ocean Grove and the other part in Wallington,” she said.
“That’s certainly something that needs to be cleared up.”
The proposal moves Ocean Grove’s northern boundary from its current boundary approximately 239 metres north towards the Bellarine Highway, in line with the current urban growth boundary.
Cr Farrell said the council had conducted community consultation, sent letters to all affected residents and had only received one submission – in favour of the boundary realignment.
