Three units proposed for under-sized Edward St block

A development application has been submitted for three units in a multi-dwelling development at 10 Edward St, Woy Woy.

The development consists of "attached and semi-detached two-storey terraces" with ground level garage parking for five cars.

The site currently contains a single storey brick dwelling.

The 689.3 square metre site is less than the required size for a multi-dwelling development of 750 square metres.

The development complies with a six metre front setback and four metre average side setbacks.

However, with the third unit facing a rear lane, the rear setback of just 1.5 metres is less than the six metre minimum.

Side setbacks also vary to as low as two metres, where the minimum is 3.5 metres.

The site has maximum floor space ratio of 0.6:1, with the development falling within this at 0.48:1.

The proposed height is 7.6 metres, less than the maximum of 11 metres.

The application, prepared by L87 Pty Ltd of St Ives, claims the "architectural form and design details are appropriate to existing scenic quality and streetscape character".

"Garden design and detail are compatible with scenic quality and streetscape character," it states.

All the living areas and yards are said to have three-hour solar access in winter time.

Each backyard has a five metre square private open space.

Balconies on the upper floor are "fully covered by vertical privacy screens to ensure there are no privacy impacts to neighbouring houses".

The proposed site coverage is 292.4 square metres or 42 per cent of the site, while the landscape area is 242.1 square metres or 35 per cent of the site.

Units 1 and 2 have three bedrooms, while unit 3 has four.

Unit 1 has a single garage, while units 2 and 3 have double garages.

The master bedroom and two secondary bedrooms are on the upper level for all units.
