Pearl Beach secondary dwelling set back from lagoon
Central Coast Council has received a development application for the erection of new secondary dwelling, deck and swimming pool with associated barrier fencing at 9 Beryl Boulevard, Pearl Beach.
The application prepared by BuildCert Planning states: "The secondary dwelling is proposed with a simple yet functional layout including one bedroom, a combined kitchen and living area and bathroom.
"Access will be provided from the east side of the building, through bifold doors.
"The deck is proposed attached to the east elevation of the building, including swimming pool and barrier fence."
Setbacks listed for the secondary dwelling are west side boundary 1.1m, east side boundary 10.36m, south rear boundary 11m and existing dwelling (north) 3.0m.
Swimming pool and deck setbacks, measured from the water edge, are east side boundary 3.26m, south rear boundary 13m and existing dwelling (north) 8.2m.
"In consideration of the sloping nature of the site, earthworks are considered minor with excavation is limited to concrete pads for piers and for the installation of the swimming pool.
"Despite being proposed upon the deck, a maximum 600mm cut is required to facilitate the proposal on the site."
"Although unlikely to be visible from outside of the site, the secondary dwelling will present an exterior that is sympathetic to the style of the existing dwelling, yet discernible as a new contemporary building form on site.
"External cladding and a gabled roof will materialise the aesthetic."
The application states: "The proposal will be located to the rear of the existing dwelling at the southern portion of the site, and plans do not indicate removal of vegetation is required."
No closing date is given on the Council website for submissions.
