Proposal for three-storey six-unit flats open for comment

The construction of a $1.6 million six-unit three-storey residential flat building has been proposed for Ettalong.

Central Coast Council is currently calling for public submissions into the development application for the demolition of the existing building on 56A The Esplanade at Ettalong to make way for the flat building with basement parking, pool and a two-lot strata division.

A Statement, prepared by Piper Planning to support the development application, said that the proposal had been made in response to consultation undertaken with officers of the Central Coast Council at a pre-development application meeting held on February 28.

"It was acknowledged that the site displayed contextual influences that warranted pragmatic consideration to the form of the development and its placement within its setting," the Statement said.

"The development sits at an urban interface, displaying strongly-formed commercial and residential developments in proximity," it said.

"It also displays a stunning outlook to the east, across Ettalong Beach and the Brisbane Water.

"The site therefore displays substantial value, warranting adequate capitalisation, which will underpin value and consolidation of the locality.

"The design also represents a highly-considered architectural outcome in terms of optimal use of the land and respecting the amenity of surrounding premises."

The 999 square metre lot currently contains a single dwelling and ancillary structures and the site is lower than adjoining lots to the north.

The two street frontages mean vehicle access could be via Broken Bay Rd rather than The Esplanade.

According to the Statement, the allotments exist in a locality undergoing substantial renewal and investment.

"While some original cottages exist, many surrounding premises have new structures developed to the full capacity of the lands.

"In this manner, numerous examples of newer, substantially-massed buildings are in close proximity to the south, along The Esplanade.

"In total, the development seeks consent for six dwelling units, being one four-bedroom, four three-bedroom and one two-bedroom.

"The units are placed over three levels of residential accommodation, with three on ground level, two on the midlevel and a penthouse style unit on the upper level.

"Basement carparking is proposed for 12 vehicles, with access via the western boundary of the site on Broken Bay Rd."

The proposal does not comply with the Gosford Local Environment Plan 2014 for building height or floor space.

Council has invited the public to make submissions on the proposal, closing August 21.
