Application for three three-bedroom villas

An application has been lodged to replace a single dwelling with a three-unit multi-dwelling housing development in Flathead Rd, Ettalong.

The development complies with the Gosford Local Environment Plan 2014 for height, floor space ratio and minimum lot size, according to a statement submitted in support of the application.

It deviates from the requirements for setbacks, driveway design and open space but the proponent argues the differences are minimal.

The block is located at 23 Flathead Rd, which is described as a flat 974 square metre site that currently contains a single house.

"The area is characterised by a mixture of residential of development and small scale commercial, retail, medical and educational establishments of varying height, bulk and scale," according to the application written by Clarke Dowdle and Associates.

"The site is located near public bus transport, recreational facilities, retail facilities, medical centres, hospitals and sporting grounds.

"It is considered that the proposal is in keeping with the existing and likely future development of the surrounding area.

"The application seeks consent for the demolition of the existing dwelling (and vegetation) and the erection of three three-bedroom villas with garages, driveway, stormwater tanks and front courtyard fencing.

"Vehicular access is proposed via a driveway that would run along the eastern side of the site and appropriate areas to store mobile waste collection bins away from the street and clothes drying areas that would be screened from other dwellings and the public domain.

"The multi-unit housing building design would not result in any adverse environmental, amenity, social or economic impacts to the site and surrounding area," the statement supporting the application concluded.
