Three identical multi-dwelling proposals in the one street

Three identical applications have been lodged for three identical multi-dwelling developments in Burrawang St, Ettalong.

Each application is for three three-bedroom dwellings in a gun-barrel configuration.

"Vehicular access is proposed via a shared driveway to separate garages provided for each unit," the applications in each case state.

Two of the proposals are on adjoining lots at 31 and 33 Burrawang St, while the other is just five houses down at 21 Burrawang St.

All three lots are 695 square metres in area, with identical dimensions.

The plans produced by ELK Design are all the same layout.

The applications, all prepared for Mr Andrey Vinogradov by consultants Clark Dowdle and Associates, are almost the same word-for-word.

The applications for both 31 and 33 Burrawang St both seek the removal of a street tree, when only 31 Burrawang St actually has a street tree.

In artists' impressions of the developments, they all render Burrawang St as a treed parkland environment.

All three applications state: "The dwelling construction would utilise reinforced concrete slab footings, timber roof rafters with colorbond roof sheeting, aluminium framed windows, mixture of external cladding.

"The external finishes schedule includes weatherboard cladding, powder-coated windows and colorbond roofing."

All three claim compliance with both height and floor space ratio requirements, stating that the height is well below the 8.5 metre maximum and that the floor space ratio at 0.49:1 is below the maximum allowed of 0.5:1.

They all also claim compliance with all other planning provisions, apart from parking.

No visitor parking provided.

The applications seek to justify the designs on the basis of "catering for the population increase and demand to cater for the housing needs which is now becoming a critical social issue as outlined with council's recently-adopted Central Coast Affordable and Alternative Housing Strategy".

It claims council's development approvals have changed "the character of the area to become higher density, east of Ocean Beach Rd towards Booker Bay", so that is now "eclectic in style and form".

The new developments were "contrasting with the lack of formal road formation due to the lack of kerb and guttering and drainage within the public road system as well as the lack street trees and landscaping".

"This development would not only ensure increase amenity with upgrading with the new housing stock, it would provide kerb and gutting and street trees and appropriate landscaping that the local council has been unable to provide."

The council's planning portal originally showed lodgement dates of December 23 for 31 and 33 Burrawang St, and January 24 for 21 Burrawang St.

It is now showing lodgement dates of February 13 for 21 and 33 Burrawang St, and February 3 for 31 Burrawang St.

Written submissions close on March 10 for 31 Burrawang St and on March 17 for the other two.

Each application has been assigned to a different council planning officer for assessment.
