Petrol station construction gets the go-ahead

The redevelopment of a petrol station in Ocean Beach Rd may now proceed following the issue of a construction certificate by a private certifying authority.

The $2.1 million proposal for a service station and two shops at the corner of Ryans Rd was lodged with Central Coast Council in 2016 by United Petroleum care of Creative Planning Solutions Pty Ltd.

The applicant was given deferred commencement consent in December 2016 and told it had 24 months to provide a remediation action plan and validation report to remove existing underground fuel tanks and remove or remediate any contaminated soil.

Central Coast Council wrote to the applicant recently to state that it had satisfied those conditions of deferred consent.

The land is the site of an existing self-service 24-hour United Service Station and two neighbouring houses.

The new service station will include four refuelling bays with double-sided bowsers and an associated canopy, an ancilliary service store and two tenancies.

An automatic car wash and two vacuum bays will also be built.

The site will have one illuminated pylon sign for fuel pricing, wall signage and associated landscaping, car parking and drainage.

A 2.4 metre acoustic fence will run from the exit of the car washing tunnel for six metres towards Ocean Beach Rd.

The service station and convenience store will operate 24-hours a day, seven days per week and the convenience store will employ two staff.

The car wash will operate between 7am and 10pm.

The development was permissible with Council consent within the B5 Business Development zoning.

The B5 zone was intended to enable a mix of business and warehouse uses and bulky goods premises that require a large floor area in locations that are close to centres and to provide a protect land for employment generation.

A summary of the contamination history of the site provided with the Development Application indicated that Phase 1 and Phase 2 contamination assessments had been undertaken.

Those assessments identified localised areas of soil and groundwater hydrocarbon contamination.

"In 2006, the groundwater contamination was suspected to be migrating off site and at that time should have been notified to the EPA under Section 60 of the Contaminated Lands Management Act 1997," a report by a Council environmental officer said.

"Notwithstanding this, the 2015 groundwater monitoring results were found to be free from hydrocarbons.

"The summary report states that the Phase 2 Contamination Assessment concluded that the site was suitable for continued use as a service station however remediation is required.

"The existing underground fuel infrastructure will require removal and it is expected that some contaminated soil will require remediation or removal."

The proposal was referred to Council's construction and management section for comment and a number of issues were raised in relation to road traffic safety due its location on the intersection of Ocean Beach Rd and Ryans Rd.

To address those concerns, the service station's entry-exit to Ryans Rd has been moved further away from the intersection and a No Parking area from the Bus Stop adjacent to 296 Ocean Beach Rd will extend 44 metres to the kerb return into Paul St.

This is intended to minimise obstruction to south bound traffic on Ocean Beach Rd for vehicles stopping to turn right into the development at the southern entry access.
