Men's Shed seeks approval for larger workshop

Umina Beach Men's Shed has lodged a development application with Central Coast Council to build a larger workshop.

At present the group operates from the rear of a property at 109 Birdwood Ave, Umina Beach, but they are quickly growing out of that workshop and need more space.

Last year the group approached Central Coast Council to ask for the use of public land to build a larger shed, which ultimately led to this development application.

Council agreed to lease the site at 90 Osborne Ave, Umina Beach, to the men's shed for 10 years.

The Men's Shed commissioned development consultants, Clarke Dowdle and Associates, to prepare the development application which was lodged on November 20.

The Statement of Environmental Effects said the Men's Shed wanted to build a workshop and office on the vacant 2175 square metre block near the end of Osborne Ave, and close to Umina PCYC.

It has a bitumen paved area that currently caters for parking overflow for PCYC events.

The proposal is to build a single storey workshop, comprising a steel frame and prefabricated steel sheeting, on a concrete slab.

There would be three work areas, lunchroom, kitchen and toilets as well as a detached demountable office, rainwater tanks and bitumen area for parking.

"The proposal has been carefully considered to alleviate tree and vegetation removal and the structure would be finished in an earthy tone for a harmonious blend with the leafy surrounds," the statement said.

The existing parking area will be extended to accommodate 12 spaces including one disabled space.
