Sporties $37.2 million redevelopment proposed

A $37.2 million development application has been received by Central Coast Council for the redevelopment of Woy Woy Sporties bowling club at the corner of North Burge and Brick Wharf Rds, Woy Woy.

The redeveloped site would consist of seniors housing, independent living units, a new club, retail tenancies and a basement car park.

The proposal is seen as a way for the club to meet losses of $800,000 accumulated over the past 12 years.

The applicant was listed as Woy Woy Holdings Pty Ltd, care of Barker Ryan Stewart Pty Ltd.

The number of units proposed, according to the application, was 87 over five storeys plus the basement parking.

The gross floor area of the new building work would be 20,557 square metres.

The NSW Office of the Environment and Heritage Aboriginal Heritage Information Management System recorded 15 aboriginal sites near or in the location of the proposed development.

An environmental noise assessment, submitted in support of the application, which concluded that, subject to recommendations being implemented, the redevelopment would meet the Liquor and Gaming NSW and the EPA's acceptable noise limits at all nearby residential and passive recreational locations.

According to supporting information provided by the developer: "The proposal is an opportunity to invest in and upgrade the existing site and will complement recent growth and development in Woy Woy.

"The development responds to population growth and the need for additional, high quality accommodation for seniors in proximity to the town centre of Woy Woy," the statement, made in support of the application, said.

"The proposal is compatible with recent infill development and the desired future character of the area.

"The proposal will stimulate the local economy, complement nearby commercial developments; provide additional housing for seniors and provide additional employment opportunities during and after construction.

"WT Martin and Associates have prepared a profit and loss statement from June 30, 2005, to June 30, 2016, showing that the club has traded at a loss every year since 2005 with cumulative losses of approximately $800,000.

"It is not financially viable for the club to continue trading at a loss.

"The proposed redevelopment will therefore enable retention of the club within a new building and ensure its long term financial viability through the co-location of compatible seniors housing and cafe tenancies.

"The proposed Woy Woy Sporties will be orientated to the north east with views towards Brisbane Water and the Lions Park.

"The proposal will include a bistro, auditorium, entertaining areas, deck and 'all-weather' bowling green.

"The club will be accessed from North Burge Rd and will have facilities to accommodate 300 people.

"The proposal is setback from the waterfront and will not cause substantive view loss or privacy issues for nearby residential developments.

"The proposal includes five retail tenancies and associated bathrooms.

"Retail tenancies were approved by Gosford Council on December 17, 2014 (DA 4596/2014).

"The proposed development achieves appropriate separation between the club, retail tenancies and residential units, with well-defined primary access points for each area.

"Residential units will have pedestrian access from street level off both Brick Wharf Rd and North Burge Rd and lift access from the basement car park to residential floors.

"Retail tenancies will be accessed via the boardwalk fronting Lions Park.

"The basement car park will be accessed from North Burge Road with internal lift and stair access to residential floors.

"One hundred and thirty eight basement car parking spaces are proposed, including 14 accessible spaces and 18 visitor spaces.

"The redevelopment of the Woy Woy Sporties Club will retain existing trading hours, operating from Monday to Sunday from 5am to 12am.

"The redevelopment will enable Woy Woy Sporties to continue to operate from the site and ensure the clubs long term financial viability.

"Recreational pursuits will be retained by providing a new meeting area for the local fishing club and an all-weather bowling green.

"The development will not detract from the natural environment for recreational purposes and the development is consistent with the desired future character of the area and includes an integrated architectural design to reduce visual impact, protect scenic values and promote view sharing.

"The proposed development responds to population growth and the need for additional, high quality accommodation for seniors.

"The proposal will provide additional housing choice in the form of two-bedroom, three-bedroom, sub-penthouse and penthouse units; and the development includes an integrated architectural design and landscaping to protect scenic value, promote view sharing and casual surveillance.

"The proposal represents rational, orderly, economic and sustainable use of the land and should therefore be supported," the developer's statement concluded.
