Application to construct new warehouse

Central Coast Council has received a development application to demolish an existing structure at 58 Memorial Ave, Blackwall, and construct a new warehouse there.

The proposal from applicant KM Design Partners of Umina Beach for owner PL Hicken Pty Ltd would see a new building with an east-west orientation, with its northern and southern walls to be shared with future adjacent developments.

Allotments to the north and south have existing industrial developments.

The application asks for zero setback to the south which is similar to adjacent developments.

The site used to be an equipment hire warehouse.

About 85 per cent of the site is flat with the remainder rising sharply to the eastern boundary which adjoins Blackwall Mountain Reserve.

A statement supporting the application says the site is within a bushfire prone area and within a high risk landslip zone and could be subject to road widening. According to the report, council staff advised the site may be subject to contamination.

A geotechnical investigation of the site was made and consulting engineers Forum held discussions with the NSW Environment Protection Authority.

The Forum report said the nearby Caltex Service Station had entered into a voluntary management proposal with the authority in September 2015, relating to hydrocarbon contamination of groundwater.

Forum did not consider the groundwater on the proposed warehouse site posed a risk to users but recommended that groundwater not be used at the site for any purpose.

It also said that potential contamination from existing fill material on the site was limited.

The application is on public exhibition until June 21.
