Three townhouse gun-barrel development proposed

A development application has been submitted to Central Coast Council to build three two-storey townhouses at a cost of $600,000 at 18 Warrah St, Ettalong Beach.

At one place, the application says that all units will have three bedrooms. At another, it says there will be two three-bedroom units and one four-bedroom.

This application was prepared by planning consultants Clarke Dowdle and Associates, based on the plans and information provided by Knight Mapleton Design Partners.

The development would be in a "gun barrel" configuration with vehicular access proposed via a common driveway to separate garages provided for each of the three dwellings.

"The proposed dwellings provide ground floor private open space areas with plunge pools, internal storage and a space to locate waste collection bins away from the street and clothes drying areas that would be screened from other dwellings and the public domain," according a statement provided by the planning consultants.

The proposal does not comply with minimum lot size or height requirements of planning controls for the site.

The lot size is 727.1 square metres compared to a minimum of 750, while the proposed height is 8.853 metres compared to a maximum of 8.5 metres.

The proposal does not comply with setback requirements, with side setbacks varying to as little at 1.13 metres where 3.5 metres is required, and rear setback being 3.05 metres where 6.0 metres is required.

The depth of the building is 38.8 metres, where the planning provisions allow a maximum of 25 metres.

The dimensions of open space for two of the three units are also non-compliant.

The consultants provided a litany of other non-compliant developments on the Peninsula as justifying precedents for this application.

Among the list are two others at 20 Warrah St and 32 Warrah St.

The council's planning portal also shows what appear to be similar developments submitted by the same applicant at 19 Warrah St, approved in 2019, at 21 Warrah St, submitted on March 23, and at 25 Warrah St, which is currently awaiting council assessment.

Another three townhouse development at 2 Warrah St was approved in 2019. It also had a lot size of 727 square metres.
