Application to modify three-storey Blackwall Rd plan

Central Coast Council has received an application to change the approval of a development for 154 Blackwall Rd, Woy Woy, next door to the Anglican Church.

The application seeks to reduce the number of units from 10 to nine, and to change the use from residential flats to NDIS disability flats.

The section 4.55(2) application was submitted by way of a Social Impact Statement prepared by Sarah George Consulting and accompanying plans.

The statement said: "The proposal involves construction of a three-storey building, comprising nine fully accessible apartments, including four two-bedroom units, and five one-bedroom units."

It had "car parking on site for 10 vehicles, including eight dedicated accessible parking spaces, and one carer's space".

One motorbike parking space was provided.

"The appearance of the proposed development results in a less bulky form that the approved residential flat building.

"Each room comprises a kitchen, accessible bathroom, living/ dining room and laundry facilities.

"Each room includes private open space in the form of a balcony or courtyard.

Communal spaces such as a communal lobby, lift lobby, outdoor landscaped space bin storage and general storage areas are located on the ground floor.

"Pedestrian access to the site is off Blackwall Rd, while vehicular entrance and exit is via a combined driveway off an unnamed rear lane."

The statement makes reference to a further assessment of the applications against "the relevant statutory provisions" in a Statement of Environmental Effects accompanying the application to modify consent.

This statement did not appear on the council website.

The comment period for the application closes tomorrow, Tuesday, May 4.
