Proposal for four townhouses in Allfield Rd

A proposal to build four townhouses at 23 Allfield Rd, Woy Woy has been submitted to Central Coast Council and will go on public exhibition from October 24 until November 14.

The proposal complies with development standards for the area, according to a supporting statement written by Clarke Dowdle and Associates for the applicant Knight Mapleton Design Partners.

However, it does not meet the minimum side boundaries or rear setbacks and two of the units don't have the minimum width of open space.

The application argues that the dimensions of the private open space are numerically non-complaint, but says a practical open space area on the ground to be provided to the occupants as the terrace connect through to the long open space located on the eastern side of the lot.

"In this instance, the multi-unit housing would be located within walking distance of outdoor and indoor recreational facilities which allows for occupants to regularly participate in outdoor or social pursuits,'' the statement says.

"The private open space would be commensurate with the scale of private open space that is required for single dwelling-houses and secondary dwellings and is therefore acceptable."

The buildings would cost an estimated $800,000.

The proposal would see the existing house demolished and fill imported.

The application says each dwelling would include three bedrooms, living areas with vehicular access via a central driveway to separate garages provided for each dwelling.

The proposed dwellings would provide ground floor private open space areas, internal storage and a space to locate waste collection bins away from the street and clothes drying areas that would be screened from other dwellings and the public domain.

"The lightweight appearance with a mixture of weatherboard cladding rather than the more extensive masonry is a prominent feature of the design, all elements identified within the council's desired character elements for the Ettalong Beach-Medium Density precinct,'' the application states.
