Applicant asks Council to review its refusal
The applicant for a subdivision of a block of land at South Woy Woy has asked Central Coast Council to review its decision to refuse the proposal.
Council refused in March an application lodged in November by SJH Planning and Design to subdivide 145 Woy Woy Rd, Woy Woy, into two lots.
It said the applicant did not adequately address the matters required to be demonstrated by the council's planning provisions.
The applicant asked to be allowed to subdivide the land to create a vacant roadfront lot 81 and a lot 82 containing the existing residence, which abuts waterfront reserve at Correa Bay at the rear of the property.
But council said the proposed Lot 81, at 524.5 square metres, would fail to meet the minimum specified lot size of 550 square metres required by the Gosford Local Environment Plan by 4.7 per cent.
The council assessment stated that, while Lot 82 would achieve a site area of 550.2 square metres, this was 99.8 square metres (15.4 per cent) smaller than the requirement for lots next to public land.
"Council as the consent authority cannot form the requisite opinion of satisfaction to justify the departure,'' the refusal said.
