Increase sought to restaurant seating

This application has been made to increase the seating at a restaurant at 61 Trafalgar Ave, Woy Woy, from 18 to 50.

The development application, prepared by Christopher Lloyd Consultant Planners of Umina, states the objective is "to gain approval for a modest increase to patron capacity for the existing approved food and drink premises, trading as Tropicana Social Club".

The application requests an existing outdoor covered area at the rear of the premises be included as a dining area.

"Construction required to facilitate the increased capacity is limited to the rear southern and western boundary fencing, required to meet acoustic recommendations," the application states.

The shop is opposite Runway Park in Trafalgar Ave, and adjacent to the Umina Fire Station on one side and "a cafe and take away pizza shopto the south at 63 Trafalgar Ave".

The application states a recent modification to DA15229/1991 allowed for "a total of 18 patrons associated with the on-site dining function of the premises any one time".

"The restaurant measures 150 square metres internally, inclusive of 50 square metres of kitchen, bar, and storage areas, allowing ample space for additional seating.

"The inclusion of an existing rear outdoor covered area as seating is considered a useful addition to the restaurant, enabling small groups of people to sit together, undercover and outside of the primary restaurant area.

"This outdoor area would have no amplified music, and is proposed to cease being in use after 10pm all nights.

"No on site car parking is proposed.

"The minor increase to car parking associated with the use of the rear undercover area for dining is not necessary in this instance," the application asserted.

"The proposed increase to patron capacity can be catered for with existing on-street parking availability, with no detrimental impact to the surrounding street network."

The application states: "The site has been operational for over 12 months and has become a cherished institution for locals and travellers to the area alike, to enjoy the ambience, great food and quirky design of the premises.

"The proposed increased capacity will result in a social dining space capable of servicing the needs of the local area and providing much needed employment opportunities."
