Peninsula properties deleted from heritage list

A community-based heritage study initiated by the former Gosford Council has been finalised, but Central Coast Council has resolved to delete two Peninsula properties from the list.

Councillors resolved to specifically delete 24 Jacaranda Ave, Patonga, and 30 Cornelian Ave, Pearl Beach, from the list of properties to be included as local heritage items identified by the 2016 study.

The exclusion of the properties was based on strong objections from both owners.

The owner of 24 Jacaranda Ave, Patonga, strongly objected to the potential heritage listing, according to a council staff report.

The owner's objection was based on the property not being in keeping with the character of the area.

"The property has extensive white ant damage that will require replacement of significant fabric and architectural features," the staff report said.

"It is recommended that a further assessment of the property be conducted focused on the condition of the building and fabric.

"A decision can then be made as to whether to retain the property on the proposed heritage list and include it as part of the next heritage review," it said.

The owner of the Pearl Beach property also objected to the proposed listing as they had not been included in the full process of the heritage study.

"The owners have not been part of the extensive consultation that has been a significant part

of the heritage listing study process," the staff report said.

"As such, it is recommended that consideration of the proposed heritage listing be postponed until the next heritage review is conducted in order to allow for appropriate consultation with the owners."

"The next heritage review is expected to commence within 12 months of the finalisation of this planning proposal."

The community based heritage study was undertaken to fulfil the former Council's statutory obligations to manage the heritage of its local government area and protect heritage through local environmental plans.

The two properties were dropped from the list even though the Gosford Council heritage officer and a consultant had engaged with property owners for four months from October 2015 to January 2016.

Their draft list was then peer-reviewed and approved by the then Council general manager for public exhibition.

The initial planning proposal was given "gateway approval" by the NSW Government in September 2017 and again placed on public exhibition resulting in 13 submissions being received, seven of those were new objections to proposed heritage items.

Buildings within two Peninsula public schools, Woy Woy and Pretty Beach, have been included as local heritage items.
