Application for strata-subdivided dual occupancy

The Central Coast Council has received development application for a two-storey dual occupancy and strata subdivision at 97 Broken Bay Rd, Ettalong Beach

The application includes the demolition of the existing timber framed fibro duplex.

The application prepared by SJH Planning and Design states that "Both dwellings have integrated access to extensive open space and utility court provisions exceeding requirements in terms of area and dimension enhancing the 'liveability' of each.

"The inclusion of an accessible powder room at the ground floor, together with lifts, ensure that, subject to future owners' furnishing preferences, each of the dwellings are 'accessible'."

The two double storey dwellings will be connected at a central point by "oversized" double garages accessed from Lagoon St on the north side of the site.

This results in compact driveways, a fact which is reflected in this development's lack of variations to planning requirements for setbacks, deep soil areas and "private open space".

All of the requirements are said to be met or exceeded apart from the building envelope provision about which the application states that the building is "generally within, eaves protrude".

In common with many multi unit proposals, this application claims "roofed terrace" areas, enclosed on three sides and roofed over, are part of "private open space".

This development will require the removal of three trees including one street tree to "facilitate the proposed driveway".

The "Landscape Principles Plan" proposes a total of 11 new "compact" trees to be planted on the property.

According to the Central Coast Council's planning portal, the application has a status of "advertising notification" and was lodged on May 3.

However, the portal does not say when the "public exhibition" period ends.
