Four units proposed for Waratah Ave site

Four units would be constructed in a gun-barrel development at 24 Waratah Ave, Woy Woy, under a multi-dwelling housing proposal received by Central Coast Council.

The proposal, prepared by Sandra Trad Design, includes the demolition of an existing split-level brick dwelling.

The application claims the existing improvements on the site have no significant architectural merit or historical significance and are currently in a level of disrepair.

"The proposed development features a mix of single and double storey.

"The proposal provides all four units with a large courtyard area at ground level, featuring a mix of hard and soft finishes to enhance its livability.

"The courtyards are accessible and mated to their corresponding living areas."

The application states the development is a mix of three and four bedroom units, but it does not say how many of each.

Plans accompanying the application show three of the four units to have garages, with the rear unit having only a carport.

The front unit has a double garage.

There is one visitor parking space.

The plan shows four "advanced feature trees" and three "medium feature trees" to be planted, but the removal of a street tree.

The application claims to comply with planning provisions in all but rear setback.

"The rear ground floor setback complies," the application claims.

"The proposal seeks a variation to the clause for the first floor setback.

"The design of the first floor is consistent with the whole development.

"There are no overshadowing or privacy impacts to the neighbouring sites.

"Strict compliance is unnecessary."

The application claims bravely that the development "embraces the current objectives of the planning instruments and control measures", would be "a functional development with high levels of amenity, both for the end user and those it neighbours", and would "develop a new standard to be applied upon similar development in the precinct".

Written submissions close on Friday, August 26.
