Plans for six three-storey townhouses

Plans are being considered by Central Coast Council for the construction of six townhouses in two, three-storey blocks at Woy Woy.

The proposal put forward by Ark Express Design is to build the four-bedroom townhouses on a roughly L-shaped block which has frontages to 200 Blackwall Rd and 259 Burge Rd.

Two of the townhouses will face and gain access from Blackwall Rd and entry to the other four will be on Burge Rd.

The application stated that the proposed development was permissible within the R1 General Residential zone.

It sought a variation of floor space ratio of the 0.6:1 ratio required by planning provisions, to increase it to 0.81:1, claiming that such a restrictive development standard would not be appropriate for this project.

Other variations were sought to allow changes to the side setbacks as well as the provision of open car spaces in the front setback.

The statement says the variations are two metres and 2.5 metres setbacks to the northern and southern boundaries, respectively, instead of the 3.5 metre minimum requirement.

According to the statement, the proposed setbacks would not result in any adverse impacts from overshadowing or privacy to any adjoining properties and building separation would be provided between the new development and the units to the south, so the objectives of the setbacks would be achieved.

A variation to car parking requirements was sought to allow three open spaces in the front setbacks, with one space facing Blackwall Rd and two on Burge Rd.

The statement said the development would be contemporary in design and present an appropriate height, bulk and scale, in keeping with the "emerging character of the surrounding medium density neighbourhood".

The four-bedroom townhouses will have ground level courtyards and upper level balconies.

On the ground floor, there would be living and dining rooms, kitchen, laundry, toilet, rear courtyard and single garage.

First floor would comprise three bedrooms, bathroom, with bedroom two having an ensuite and balcony facing the street.

A fourth bedroom, with ensuite, would be on the second floor, also with a balcony facing the street. SOURCE: Website, 11 Mar 2020 DA 58026/2020, Central Coast Council
