Six units proposed to replace two houses in one street

Two multi-dwelling housing proposals have been lodged with Central Coast Council for the same street.

One application involves the demolition of existing structures and building of a three-unit multi-housing development at 55 Springwood St, Ettalong.

The cost of work is estimated at $600,000 but no other details are currently available on Central Coast Council's planning portal.

The other, lodged on July 4, is for the demolition of the existing house at 14 Springwood Street - the Blackwall end of the street - to also replace it with three units.

The 14 Springwood Street proposal is open for public comment until August 14 and one submission has already been lodged.

On 26 September 2019, Council refused DA 55557/2018 on the basis that the multi-dwelling development was not in accordance with the objectives of Zone R1 General Residential under the Gosford Local Environmental Plan (GLEP) 2014.

This latest application includes the erection of a two storey residential flat building containing three two-bedroom dwellings on concrete slab footings with timber stud wall framing.

The application includes a driveway along the northern side, stormwater provisions, front courtyard fencing and landscaping.

The 715 square metre site does not comply with the minimum lot size of 750 square metres.

A Statement in support of the application written by Clarke Dowdell and Associates said: "The site has sufficient area and dimensions to cater for the proposed ... development as it is compliant with the floor area, vertical limitation, building setbacks and off street parking requirements for the RFB development."

The one submission received by Council was opposed to the application and called for trees at the front of the property to be preserved while questioning the size of the development on a relatively small block, limited off-street parking and the additional traffic burden on already-busy local roads.
