Dual occupancy 'complies with planning provisions'

An application to construct and subdivide an "attached" dual occupancy at 31 Webb Rd, Booker Bay, has been received by Central Coast Council.

The application claims to comply with all planning provisions.

The structure will be of two storeys and both units will contain three bedrooms.

Prepared by D-Plan Urban Planning Consultants on behalf of applicant Residential Logistics Pty Ltd, the application states: "The property is rectangular in shape, with a frontage of 13.715 metres and a length of 45.72 metres, creating a total site area of 626 square metres."

The height is 8.197 metres and floor space ratio 0.499:1 which is less than the maximum allowable height of 8.5 metres and maximum floor space ratio of 0.5:1.

The area of soft landscaping is claimed to be 32 per cent slightly above the minimum of 25 per cent.

There is no mention of any existing or planned trees in the application, although it does state that there are no street trees in the immediate area.

The only plan provided with the application is a basic outline on the shadow diagram.

The shadow diagram itself has an incorrect depiction of true north and, as the diagrams have been drawn to this false north, they are out by roughly seven degrees.

The architectural drawings consist of elevations only.

It is not clear whether this complies with Environmental Planning and Assessment Act requirements for public exhibition.

The application claims: "Thoughtful orientation of windows, doors and design features has produced an aesthetically pleasing facade to the development that contributes to the streetscape amenity.

"The design of the proposed development will complement the existing streetscape of Webb Rd which comprises both single and larger two-storey building forms.

"There is an obvious emerging trend for improvement, with small single storey cottages being replaced with larger two-storey dwellings and in some cases increased densities.

"The design incorporates contemporary architectural themes with articulation and a pitched, hipped roof design.

"Design features, single storey elements and the effective use of colours and materials reduce the overall bulk and scale of the building, while compliant front and rear setbacks ensure that the development does not adversely affect the existing streetscape amenity."

The proposal is currently on public exhibition and written submissions will be accepted until March 30.
