Proposal for four townhouses in Allfield Rd

Central Coast Council has received an application for a four-unit multi-dwelling development at 15 Allfield Rd, Woy Woy.

The development comprises four two-storey dwellings, with garages at ground floor, with parking for one car for townhouses 2and 3 and for two cars for townhouses 1 and 4.

Each has open-plan kitchen, dining and living connecting to private open space.

"At the first floor, each dwelling is provided with three bedrooms and master bedroom," the application states.

"Each bedroom has either built-in or walk-in wardrobes and at least two bedrooms in each dwelling have access to an ensuite bathroom."

The proposal removes "some" existing trees and vegetation on the site.

However, the plan does not show the retention of any trees, apart from the street tree, suggesting that all trees on the site will be removed.

"Removal of the on-site trees would be required under any reasonable development of the site consistent with the zoning of the land, and the proposal includes landscaping, including replacement tree planting which will maintain a landscaped setting for the proposed development."

There is no arborist report or landscape plan provided in the public exhibition of the proposal.

The proposal is not compliant with planning provisions in a number of respects.

The rear setback should be 4.5 metres, but the proposal states that "the proposal has rear setback of between 2.13 metres and 4.3 metres."

The side setback envelope requirements are breached by about 300mm, according to the application.

The minimum dimension of the Private Open Space areas are significantly less than the 4.5 metres required in the planning provisions.

The application is open for written submissions but the council website does say when the exhibition period will end.
