Two-storey dual occupancy proposed for Murray St

Central Coast Council has received an application from Provincial Homes for a new two-storey dual occupancy at 15 Murray St, Booker Bay.

The application states that "careful consideration has been given to the exhibited design in order to comply with Council's DCP 2013 and LEP 2014 requirements whilst still maintaining the client's budget as best as possible".

"Visual features include a contemporary facade that compliments both old and new homes in the area.

"This provides a positive impact from a home that was designed to blend in with surrounding homes.

"The site area is 629.90 square metres giving a compatible floor space ratio of 59 per cent, which is under the allowable 70 per cent.

"The proposed overall height of the dwelling is approximately 8.035m.

"The setbacks of the building comply with the streetscape to reduce visual impact.

"The setbacks are 6.5m from the front boundary to the building line, 1m to the left-hand side boundary, 1.005m to the right-hand side boundary, 13.455m from the alfresco to the rear boundary and 16.455m from the first floor to the rear boundary.

"The site currently has an older domestic residence on it.

"Most of the surrounding homes look about 40 to 50 years old."

The application does not seek approval for demolition of the existing house on the site.

According to the application: "Landscaping will be done by the owners in accordance with the approved landscape plans.

"It is acknowledged that the proposed building envelope does not comply with the Council requirements.

"However the area of non-compliance is the eaves.

"We believe that the design (despite the minor non-compliance) still achieves Council's main objectives:

"(f) to facilitate design excellence by ensuring the extent of floor space in building envelopes leaves generous space for the articulation and modulation of design,

"(g) to ensure that the floor space ratio of buildings on land in Zone R1 General Residential reflects Council's desired building envelope,"

The "approved landscape plans" were not available on the council website for public viewing, nor are shadow diagrams which would show any increase in overshadowing of the adjacent property on the South side cause by the non-compliant eaves.

The customary "solar eye" is not provided nor is there an accurate north point provided.

A note on the public contour plan states: "The bearings on these plans are from Land Titles Office plans. They are MGA.

"If accurate true north is required, a further survey would be necessary."

While the application has a current status of "Notification/Advertising" on the Council's "new look" eplanning portal, there is no indication of a closing date for submissions.
