Council defers adoption of consolidated planning
Central Coast Council has unanimously agreed to defer the adoption of its Consolidated Local Environment Plan and Development Control Plan.
Deputy mayor Cr Jane Smith put forward the deferral, saying councillors needed time for legal advice on council's ability to rezone privately-owned landholdings.
She also wanted an updated table that compared the proposed changes with the former Gosford and Wyong council plans, which would be consolidated, and a briefing on the environmental and urban edge review.
The Plans were out on public exhibition from late 2018 until March this year and attracted 756 written submissions.
Numerous submissions raised concern over the rezoning for high rise development and increased density within the Woy Woy Peninsula.
The report said the proposal did not seek to rezone Woy Woy Peninsula for high rise development.
"Land zones that apply within the Woy Woy Peninsula under the current Gosford LEP will remain under the Central Coast LEP,'' council staff responded.
"The maximum height and floor space ratio currently applicable within the business centre and surrounding R1 General Residential zoned land is not proposed to change."
The report said the introduction of dual occupancy development within the R2 low density residential zone was not considered to have a major impact on density and could even have less impact than already permissible uses such as secondary dwellings, boarding houses and seniors housing.
