Decline in non-compliance is deemed to be acceptable

The Council's express 24-hour development application assessment process will certainly be responsible for increasing the number of development applications for the Peninsula.

Assisting this process is the advice from the applicant DA56500 (Peninsula News edition 470).

Attracting support for any Peninsula development from Council staff and councillors requires the addition of a roof terrace bar and pool.

Assurance that these two low-cost additions to a development will support tourism and the local economy is more than sufficient to outweigh all other issues, thus assuring approval.

Before submissions close, I am confident this application will be approved despite the public's concerns and non- compliance.

The report in Peninsula News edition 470 includes comments on over shadowing and mid-winter solar access.

It is pointless commenting on these issues as they are both now regarded as insignificant.

The latest example of this practice is approval of the development at the Farnell Rd, Woy Woy, approved despite non-compliance to solar access.

My suggestion to the editor and staff is to omit comments on solar access and overshadowing, with an informed comment on why these two issues are irreverent.

This will assist the community when making submissions on DAs.

I have reported that the Department of Planning and Environment has adopted overshadowing and solar access non-compliance practice for Gosford's City Centre revitalisation.

Though solar access was non-compliant, the Department deemed further decline was acceptable: A permanent non-compliance issue, of no interest to the authorities.

Reality will not be freely advertised by the Central Coast Council.

No doubt Peninsula residents have identified many other permanent non-compliant issues.
