Application to raise floor and ceiling heights

Central Coast Council have received a Section 4.55(1A) Modification request to previously approved DA63169/2021 which is for a six-unit, two-storey multi-dwelling development at 386 Booker Bay Rd, Booker Bay.

The application was prepared on behalf of Motian Group Pty Ltd by Moov Modular.

It states that "Development Consent DA63169/2021 has physical commencement, and building works are in accordance with the Part 4 consent and are currently underway."

This statement is somewhat confusing in light of the request for "minor modifications" which include an increase in the floor and ceiling heights on both levels by 300mm.

Other minor modifications were to "adjust the roof angle of the north-facing roof pitches to accommodate highlight windows above the south facing roofs" and to "add two north-facing highlight windows to all six units" - 12 windows in all.

Another request was for first floor windows, one facing east for Unit 3 and one facing west for Unit 4.

The purpose of the extra 14 windows and associated changes to roof pitches was said to "improve solar access".

The reason given for the 300mm increase in height was that: "Pre-construction site analysis by consulting engineer (Halcrow and Associates) identified that the approved relative levels were consistently lower than neighbouring properties and would create a water run-off issue into the approved development site."

The application stated: "An increase of 300mm to the floor and ceiling for both ground and 1st floor levels will significantly reduce the flow of surface water across the development site."

The increased ridge height resulting from these changes was still well within the 8.5m height limit, according to the application.

The application is currently on public exhibition on the Central Coast Council website with a status of "notification/advertising".

The closing date for written public submissions is not disclosed.
