Three units proposed for $1.2 million development
A $1.2 million proposal for the construction of a three-unit multi-dwelling development has been submitted to Central Coast Council for 44 Kourung St, Ettalong.
"The proposed development features a mix of single and double storey," the application prepared by Sandra Trad of Red Apple Design states.
"The envelope is well modulated and the facade articulated to eliminate long runs of blank wall, no large gable ends are utilized.
"The facade is to be of mixed external finishes emulating those materials commonly used
in the precinct.
"The main roof has a pitch of 22.5 degrees and is of colorbond steel.
"Eave depths are 450mm throughout to provide shadow casts and further contrast to the facade.
"The proposal provides all three units with a large courtyard area at ground level, featuring a mix of hard and soft finishes to enhance its livability.
"The courtyards are accessible and mated to their corresponding living areas.
"Vehicular access and maneuvering is predominantly via a common driveway and is accessible from Kourung St.
"To the street frontage, mixed material screen fencing is set back behind semi-transparent plantings and articulated to avoid long flat runs."
The proposal does not comply with setback requirements of the planning provisions, and seeks a variance to allow a garage of one unit to be built to the fenceline.
Public comments are being received until January 17.
