Nursing home proposal resubmitted for Hillview St
The company behind a proposal to build a 160-bed nursing home in Hillview St, Woy Woy, has decided to submit a full development application.
Thompson Health Care had previously sought approval for the nursing home as a modification to a retirement village proposal approved in 2007.
Central Coast Council rejected that request on the basis that the changes sought were too great to be considered a modification and required a full development application.
The company has now resubmitted the plans as a development application for a three-storey 160-bed "residential care facility" with 152 separate bedrooms, resident recreational spaces, staff and operational facilities and 52 basement car parking spaces.
The proposal, lodged on February 13, included a dementia wing of 20 rooms and has a gross floor area of 9164 square metres.
With an anticipated cost of $27.8 million, the application will consequently need to be approved by the Joint Regional Planning Panel.
According to Central Coast Council's online development tracker, the application will be advertised and open for submissions until March 15.
Both Central Coast Council staff and the Joint Regional Planning Panel will be required to assess the new application on its merits.
The development has not yet been listed for consideration by the Joint Regional Planning Panel.
The subject land has an area of 1.166 hectares and a frontage to 156 metre frontage to Hillview St.
It contains a significant stand of the gazetted "endangered ecological community" Umina Coastal Sandplain Woodland.
