PLANS for a nudist resort at Burrum Heads have stalled, with no formal proposal being put to the home's current owner.

Herb Taylor, a self-described property entrepreneur, and his mother Marg planned to buy a property in the Burrum Heads National Park and build a nudist resort.

Despite Mr Taylor's declaration he would turn the home into a camp for people keen to get their gear off; he is yet to put an offer on the property.

The secluded home on the banks of the Burrum River was the first built in Burrum Heads.

The home is currently owned by Doug Waters.

Mr Taylor said health problems had delayed his offer, which he intends to lodge in the next few weeks.

"I intend to put a preliminary offer in with the purchase subject to the council (approving a change of use)," he said.

But Mr Waters said he had not heard from Mr Taylor and his real estate agent had struggled to make contact with him.
