Five-level residence proposed at The Sanctuary

Central Coast Council has received an application for a five-level residence at 11D The Sanctuary, Umina Beach, with a swimming pool and detached studio with a total cost of almost $1.3 million.

The application submitted by architect Mr R J Blackmore states: "The proposed development is consistent with the desired character of Umina 10 - Woodland Hillside.

"The design intent is to construct a new dwelling that nestles amongst the surrounding properties with least impact to same.

"The residence consists of multiple split levels and with a faceted footprint to best follow the natural contours of the land.

"The northern side of the residence opens up to abundant natural light and outlook and the south side is very private and robust and provides a solid anchorage to the existing bedrock."

An arborist's report catalogues 31 trees, of which 29 are proposed to be removed.

The report states: "That the removal of 29 remaining trees, which will be subject to major and unsustainable levels of encroachment, is approved subject to the provision of compensatory replacement planting."

The application states: "Existing vegetation (is) to be managed in accordance with bushfire requirements.

"The bushland setting (is) to be complimented with preference for indigenous and drought-tolerant plant selections."

It says the proposal complies with the council's development standards: "The proposed design complies with DCP2013."

Both floor space ratio and site coverage would be below the maximum permitted.

It claims the building would fit within the permitted building envelope.

"The proposed development does not breach maximum height limit of 8.5m."

The Bushfire Hazard Assessment Bushfire produced by Bushfire Planning and Design concludes: "Regardless of the variable 40-47m of managed land to the north, north east and north west, the effective slope being greater than 20 per cent downslope will create a possible flame length of in excess of 70m.

"Defendable space is provided however an insufficient Asset Protection Zone is provided to avoid flame contact.

"It is a requirement that the proposal is submitted to the NSW Rural Fire Service for their review."

A review by the NSW Rural Fire Service is not visible on the Council's planning portal.

The application, at time of writing, had a status of "advertising notification".

However council staff advised that the public exhibition period ended on April 28.

Adjoining residents were advised of this development application by mail but it was not included in "current development applications" on the Central Coast Council website and would not have appeared in Council's Connect eNews.
