Hotel: The first objection is that the proposed hotel appears to be at odds with the intentions of the Colac Otway Planning Scheme, as outlined for the Development and use in the Rural Activity Zone.

Reference: (pp. 264-265) 35.08-5 Decision guidelines - Apollo Bay Hinterland Rural Activity Zone Land.

'Uses and development in the Rural Activity Zone to the west of Apollo Bay such as… hotel…and other similar uses will be discouraged '
