Four-unit development proposed for Paul St

A development application has been received by Central Coast Council for a multi-unit housing development, estimated to cost $800,000, comprising four dwellings at 37 Paul St, Umina Beach.

Although just five houses from Ocean Beach Rd, the site is described as "within the immediate proximity of the Ettalong CBD".

This application was prepared by Clark Dowdle and Associates on behalf of the owners of the land, based on the plans and information provided by Knight Mapleton Design Partners.

The application stated: "The area is characterised by a mixture of residential of development and small scale commercial, retail, medical and educational establishments of varying height, bulk and scale.

"The site is located near public bus transport, recreational facilities, retail facilities, medical centres-hospitals and sporting grounds.

"The application seeks consent for four three-bedroom town-houses with front courtyard fencing.

"Vehicular access is proposed via central driveway to separate garages provided for each unit."

The proposal is on a lot size of 808.3 square metres, has a height of seven metres and a floor space ratio of 0.49:1 that comply with planning provisions.

However, with a side boundary setback of as little as one metre, the proposal does not comply with the minimum side setback of 3.5 metres.

A rear setback of as little as 1.37 metres does not meet the requirement of six metres.

With a length of 45.66 metres, it exceeds the maximum depth requirement of 25 metres.

Three of the four units do not meet the open space requirement of 50 square metres, with units two and three having only 40 square metres and unit four having only 30 square metres.

The public comment period is from Friday, July 9, to Friday, August 6.
