Parking and open space not compliant in three-unit plan

A proposal to build three dwellings in a multi-unit development at 8 Priestman Ave, Umina, does not comply with parking requirements or private open space planning provisions.

"The application seeks consent for the erection of three town-houses with front courtyard fencing," the application prepared by Clarke Dowdle and Associates states.

"The two-storey dwellings would be founded on re-enforced concrete slab, timber framing with a mixture of external cladding as illustrated on the elevation drawings.

"Vehicular access is proposed via central driveway to separate garages provided for each unit.

"The full gamut of the proposal is illustrated within the architectural plans prepared by Howard Leslie and Associates."

The number of bedrooms per unit is not disclosed in the application or plans, but according to the Basix certificate is Unit 1 has three bedrooms, Unit 2 has two bedrooms and Unit 3 has three bedrooms.

The application includes a table which shows non-compliance with planning provisions for private open space, and visitor and resident car parking - a shortfall of one of each.

Unit 1's private open space is planned to be located within the front setback in violation of planning provisions which state: "Ground level courtyards are not permitted within the front building setback area fronting local roads."

About parking, the application states: "The proposed garages provide four off-street parking spaces which does not comply with the numerical measure of five spaces in accordance with Central Coast Development Control Plan Chapter 2.13 Parking rates for multi-housing development."

It states: "Due to the narrowness of the site, no visitor parking is provided."

"The development only consists of three dwellings that equated to 0.6 spaces and therefore is only just over the threshold for the one visitor parking space requirement.

"Unrestricted on-street parking is safely available within immediate proximity of the site."

The application makes no reference to Clause which states: "Visitor parking shall be provided for all multi dwelling housing and attached dwelling development at the rate of one space per five units, with a minimum of one visitor space per development."

The application claims the development is consistent with the objectives, planning strategies and controls applicable to the site.

"The proposal provides increased housing density which is well designed to meet residential needs and is commensurate with the character of the surrounding area."

The application is open for submissions until April 12.
