Construction certificate for Ettalong multi-dwellings

A construction certificate has been lodged with Central Coast Council for a $600,000 multi-dwelling housing development in Ettalong.

The certificate will allow work to commence on a three-townhouse development on the 727 square metre block at 20 Warrah Street.

The DA was lodged in August last year to replace a single-dwelling built in the 1980s with three townhouses.

Consent was given for the townhouse development even though the proposal fell short of the Gosford Local Environment Plan 2014 minimum lot size and exceeded the Plan's height limit.

A statement of Environment Effects submitted to Council in support of the proposal gave the following justification for the non-compliance with GLEP lot size:

"The lot size of 730.4m2 does not meet the LEP minimum lot size of 750m2 under Clause 4.1B(2), which entails a variation of 2.61 per cent.

"Notwithstanding the numerical noncompliance with the development standard, the variation is justified on planning grounds.

"[The] site has sufficient area and dimensions to cater for the proposed multi-dwelling development as it is well within the floor area and vertical limitation allowed for the medium density site.

"The proposed dwellings would be consistent with the development density, scale and style of residential development within the medium density zone, surrounding streets and within the street.

"The proposed medium density residential development would be consistent with the existing and desired character for the medium density area within the Woy Woy-Umina Peninsula locale.

"The proposal is consistent with the evolving character of the medium density area."

Similar reasons were provided for the height non-compliance.

Central Coast Council received one public submission in relation to this development.
