Application to replace house with three town houses

A proposal to build three dwellings in place of a single house at 2 Webb Rd, Booker Bay, has been placed on exhibition by Central Coast Council until September 9.

The developer is seeking consent to demolish the existing dwelling and erect three town houses.

They will have separate garages accessed from a central driveway.

The land is zoned R1 for General Residential.

The application claims the proposal complies with the Gosford Local Environmental Plan (GLEP) 2014 for minimum lot size (816 square metres), height (7.5 metres) and floor space (0.45:1).

"The proposed development includes a well-considered multi-unit development that will entail the upgrading of older housing stock," according to a statement prepared by planning consultants Clarke Dowdle and Associates.

"It would be commensurate with the evolving style and density of multi-unit development within the medium density zone within the Peninsula (generally east of Ocean Beach Road and towards Woy Woy town centre)."

The proposal does not comply with the Gosford Development Control Plan for multi-dwelling housing in terms of front, side and rear setbacks and for articulation (building width, depth and length of external walls).

Non-compliance for setbacks has been justified by the developer on the basis that the allotment is "relatively narrow at 13.75 metres" which "creates a constraint to designing multi-unit design and provide appropriate floor area and vehicle access.

"The proposed setbacks would allow the incorporation of appropriate private open space areas behind front courtyard fencing that would have direct access to the living areas with appropriate solar access," according to the consultant.

In terms of building articulation, "the proposed multi-housing development would have an overall length of 52.1 metres which does not comply with the prescriptive 25 metre requirement.

"Notwithstanding the non-compliance with the numerical measure, the proposed multi-unit development would incorporate sufficient setbacks and breaks that would negate monotonous or symmetrical appearance when viewed from the adjacent premises that will be effectively addressed."

Clarke Dowdle and Associates also said the development would allow greater than three hours solar access to living areas and private open spaces.

"The proposed garages provide five off-street parking spaces which complies with the numerical measure of five spaces in accordance with the Gosford DCP.

"Due to the narrowness of the site, no visitor parking is provided. unrestricted on-street parking is safely available within 60m of the development; as such that the proposal complies with the parking requirements outlined within the GDCP 2013."
