Nursing home refusal to be reviewed

A proposal to build a nursing home in Hillview St, Woy Woy, has been revived, with an application being submitted for the review of the Council's previous refusal.

Central Coast Council refused the $27.8 million application that sought to modify a development approved over a decade ago.

Following a Land and Environment Court hearing in 2006, an application was approved in 2007 for a 37-unit seniors living development but the new "amended" proposal was for a 160-bed aged care facility.

Council refused the latest application on the basis that it was not substantially the same development that had originally been approved and modified.

"The proposal involves radical transformation from that approved," an assessment report prepared by Council staff stated.

On November 22, three months after the refusal of the application, community members who wrote submissions received notification that Council had received an application "to review the determination of refusal" of the proposal.

"The applicant has submitted additional information aimed at addressing the previous reasons for refusal," the letter stated.

Submissions can be made on the proposal from Thursday, November 30, until Thursday, December 21.

The application for the review was made by planning consultant Doug Sneddon Planning Pty Ltd under Section 82A of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act which enables the applicant to ask for a review of Council's "determination of refusal to the proposed Section 96 Amendment - Building Modifications to Enable Use as Residential Care Facility and Section 96AB Building Modifications to Enable Use as Residential Care Facility".

"If your submission is an objection, any grounds of objection must be clearly stated and should not include references of a personal nature," the letter stated.

Although the letter stated the additional information would be available online it could not be accessed by Peninsula News at the time of going to press.

As previously reported in Peninsula News, the site of the proposed development includes a conservation zone for a gazetted Ecologically Endangered Community of Umina Coastal Sandplain Woodland.
