Group home approved to disability support

A five-bedroom group home costing $1.08 million at 17 Osborne Ave, Umina Beach, has been approved under delegation by Central Coast Council.

Neighbour consultation was undertaken with residents of adjoining and surrounding properties.

The applicant, BlueCHP Ltd, door-knocked the neighbouring residential properties and discussed with neighbours the key components of what a permanent group home was and how it would function and interact within the community.

The application to council said neighbours were also advised of the upcoming submission of the development application and that a letter and notification plans would be issued by council in coming weeks.

"The majority of neighbours appeared to support the proposed development and any queries were either answered during the door knock or via follow up queries with the contact details made available by the fact sheet,'' the report said.

The proposed permanent group home at Umina Beach is one of 78 new purpose-built specialist disability homes that will be built in the Hunter region by Home4Life.

Home4Life is a new disability housing organisation established between two non-profit housing providers: Newcastle based Compass Housing and BlueCHP.

Group homes provide up to 24 hours of support seven days a week.

The group home will be a typical suburban house with five bedrooms.

The group homes are staffed by disability workers and support people with a disability who are unable to live independently or with their family, even with support.

An arboricultural impact assessment identified 11 trees within the subject site and eight trees will be removed to allow for the proposed new building works.

The group home will be designed specifically for the proposed use and to facilitate safe, equitable and dignified access for people who have a disability.

It would provide both private and interactive spaces for home occupants and provide a home environment.

The proposed new group homes will enable the people with a disability currently living within the three Hunter based residential care centres of Stockton, Kanangra and Tomaree Centres that are being closed to be re-accommodated.
