Panel approves boarding house 'in the public interest'

The Central Coast Local Planning Panel has approved an 11-room boarding house and caretaker's residence at Umina Beach saying it provided for housing choice and was of public benefit and in the public interest.

The $1.2 million proposal was referred to the Panel, with 43 objections received during the public exhibition period.

Owner Mr Charles Raneri applied for permission to build the double-storey boarding house on an 834.7sqm block at 454 Ocean Beach Rd, Umina Beach.

The Panel determined that the issues raised by the community had been adequately addressed.

The approval included minor interior design modifications such as placement of doors for better access.

The boarding house plan of management was amended to include an alternative contact person when the boarding manager is not available, with contact details supplied to all residents and to neighbours.

No smoking is to be permitted within the communal outdoor area.

The plan of management requires a minimum period of stay of six months.

There will be six car parking spaces off the unnamed laneway at the rear of the development as well as two motorcycle spaces and another car space with access off Ocean Beach Rd.

The panel stated that the proposed development met the objectives of the R1 general residential zone and satisfied the objectives and development standards of State Environmental Planning Policy (Affordable Rental Housing) 2009.

The panel stated the development was compatible with the character of the area, and would not have unreasonable impacts on the streetscape or the residential amenity of neighbouring properties.
