Three-unit proposal for Bowden Rd

Central Coast Council has received a development application for the erection of two single-level units and one two-storey unit at 16 Bowden Rd, Woy Woy.

The $600,000 development would replace an existing dwelling and ancillary buildings on an 18.3 metre wide block of 940.8 square metres.

Vehicular access is proposed via a common driveway to separate garages provided for

each unit.

Setbacks do not comply with planning provisions.

Side boundary setbacks are as little as one metre, rather than the required 3.5 metres.

Rear setback is 1.36 metres, rather than the required six metre setback.

The 50 metre length of the building exceeds the maximum of 25 metres, and the external wall length exceeds the maximum of eight metres.

The application states that the proposal would require the removal of some exotic trees along the edge of the site.

"Given the allotment entails a building entitlement within a medium density zone, the retention of the trees is unrealistic," the application stated.

"Otherwise, the site would be sterilised regarding the ability to develop the site.

"The trees are not regionally or ecologically significant and replacement street trees can be provided if required."

Public comment is open between July 16 and August 13.
