Amendments to Berith St approval

A multi-dwelling development at 50 Berith St, Umina, approved in April 2017 has gone back to Central Coast Council for modifications to its approval.

Council has approved amendments to raise the front fence height from 1.5m to 1.8m, to use new materials for the exterior of the development and to reduce the size of some windows.

It also will convert ground floor store rooms to open study nooks.

Development consultants Clarke Dowdle and Associates said that unlike single dwelling-houses that were erected upon residential sized allotments, that typically had their principal private open space positioned to the rear of the dwelling-house, multi-unit dwelling and residential flat buildings had court yards positioned to the front of the front dwelling with courtyard fencing to allow an appropriate level of screening to the principal private open space.

This was the case with unit one in this development and 1.8m fence would allow a front private courtyard.

The application, for PM Jacques, noted that seven properties directly to the north had been redeveloped for medium density development, with each development consisting of three or four strata-titled units.

The pattern of redevelopment to the east and west also demonstrated a prolific number of medium density developments to the point where single detached dwellings were the exception, the application stated.

A further pattern to development was the permissible use of unnamed laneways for the principle access and egress for units.

The original approval allowed for three townhouses.
