Short-term accommodation proposal
Public submissions close on July 25 on a proposal for 36 Pretty Beach Rd, Pretty Beach, to be used as short-term residential accommodation.
Central Coast Council has notified the public that anyone can inspect and comment on the application at its offices at Gosford or Wyong or on line.
The applicant Highlight Consulting said the proposal would not significantly increase existing traffic.
A bushfire assessment report stated the property was a corner allotment containing an existing dwelling which was surrounded by managed lawns and landscaped gardens.
The allotment fell within a bushfire prone area as deemed by Central Coast Council. The report recommended a bushfire evacuation plan should be established and made available to all visitors and residents.
Wagstaffe-Killcare Community Association president Mr Mike Allsop said about 20 per cent of houses in the association area were holiday lettings and, in the main, they operated in a low key way and they hadn't been an issue.
He said it was a concern for nearby residents if there was an issue or if a property got a reputation for being a party house but the overall experience was positive with most well managed.
