Proposal for four two-bedroom units in Farnell Rd

A development application has been lodged with Central Coast Council for four two-bedroom villas to be built at 19 Farnell Rd, Woy Woy, at a cost of $600,000.

Vehicle access to all four units is proposed via common driveway to separate garages provided for each unit.

The proposal does not comply with planning provisions for a minimum side setback of 3.5 metres, with a proposed side setback as little as one metre.

It also does not comply with a rear setback of six metres, with a proposed rear setback being as little as 1.48 metres.

It does not provide the parking required by planning provisions, offering only four car spaces, compared to a requirement for six.

The application states: "In regards to visitor parking, unrestricted on-street parking is safely available within 60 metres of the development to cater for the occasional visitor to frequent the site via private transport."

At 50.25 metres in length, the building exceeds the maximum building dimension of 25 metres.

Three of the units do not meet the minimum open space requirement of 50 square metres, having only 40 square metres each.

The application provides 19 examples of "recent approvals of multi-unit development with the same design scale, height, setbacks, site cover and parking".

The public comment period extends from July 30 to August 27.
