A $600 million residential and golfing overhaul of the site of the former Greta Migrant Camp is on the verge of approval.

Plans for the site, including up to 1364 homes, an 18-hole golf course and a 3500sqm club house incorporating a 110-room hotel, have been five years in the planning by developer Uri Windt.
