Panel approves three unit development in Kourung St

A development application for multi-dwelling housing at 36 Kourung St, Ettalong Beach, has been approved by the Local Planning Panel at its meeting on Thursday, July 13.

The council assessment report of the three-unit proposal had recommended approval.

The report listed the key issues as non-compliance with the front setback, street tree and retaining walls, as well as matters raised in 11 unique public submissions.

These included including parking, tree removal, overshadow, private open space, setbacks and amenity impacts.

The Panel heard from two residents opposing the application as well as from the planning consultant who made the application.

The Panel resolved to "grant consent to DA/2807/2022 36 Kourung Street, Ettalong Beach, Lot 553 in DP 10570, for multi dwelling housing and demolition of existing dwelling".

It amended the council's recommended condition 6.11 to change a tree-planting requirement from a minimum 45 litre pot size to be a sapling at least 1.5 metres high.

In giving its reasons, the Panel said it was satisfied that the proposed application complied with the flood planning provisions and essential services provisions.

It said: "The proposal is satisfactory having regard to the relevant environmental planning instruments, plans and policies.

"There are no significant issues or impacts identified with the proposal."

The decision of the Panel, comprising chairperson Ms Donna Rygate, panel experts Mr Greg Flynn and Mr Stephen Leathley and community representative Ms Lyn Hunt, was unanimous.
