Revised plans lodged in response to submissions

Applicants for a development at 117 The Esplanade, Ettalong, have lodged revised plans to Central Coast Council in response to public submissions.

SJH Planning and Design has submitted a "supplementary Statement of Environmental Effects" for the development it has called "Little Box Apartments".

It is proposed to build "four penthouse apartments over two levels with basement parking for eight vehicles, incorporating an architectural roof feature, for future strata subdivision".

The revised plans include "certified vehicular access and manoeuvring arrangements inclusive of the sight triangle, providing compliant pedestrian safety sight lines to vehicles exiting the realigned basement threshold".

"Additionally, drawings have been amended reducing the height of the architectural roof feature and, by inclusion of a door prohibiting general access, redescribed that space as cleaner-plant room."

The application states that amendments to the roof feature "effectively resolve the tension raised by objectors with respect to compliance with height and floor space ratio development standards".

It said that the application no longer required a departure from "any development standard".

Objections had been received to exceeding height limits.

"The north and south pavilions which accommodate the four units were designed to comply with the applicable height control i.e. 8.5 metres.

"The inclusion of an architectural roof feature (The Lighthouse) was a positive and conscious decision to employ the appropriate planning provisions", which "permit variations to maximum building height standards for roof features of visual interest".

"That part of the building described by the architect as The Lighthouse was designed to contain and camouflage the lift motor room-overrun and provide access to the uppermost level and roof top for maintenance purposes.

"The reduction in height and other refinements to design which removes floor space from the lift overrun and roof maintenance access space contained within an architectural roof feature also addresses matters raised in relation to views and overshadowing."

Closing date for the submission of comments is Friday, September 30.
