New proposal for five units in South St

Central Coast Council has received a new development application for a five-unit residential flat building costing almost $3.2 million at 42 South St, Umina.

A previous application submitted in February proposed six units with a total floor area of 580 square metres, with a floor space ratio of 0.75:1.

The new two-storey proposal for the 789.66 square metre lot has five units with three two-bedroom units on the ground floor, including two adaptable dwellings, and two three-bedroom units on the upper floor.

Basement parking will be provided for 10 vehicles, including two disabled parking spaces.

The vehicle access would be solely via Fyffe Lane.

With a floor area of 490 square metres, the floor space ratio would be 0.62:1 which exceeds the planning provision limit of 0.6:1.

The new proposal does not have the required deep soil area, falling short by around 40 per cent, and intrudes into minimum setbacks from boundaries, with a loss of 25 per cent of setback area.

The application also admits non-compliance on overshadowing, causing the neighbouring property to receive less than three hours sunlight during the winter solstice.

In support of the application, consultants Clark Dowdle and Associates stated: "The incorporation of basement parking negates on-grade carparking and gun barrel driveway villa development that typically has a generic and bland presentation to the street with minimal landscaping flanking the driveway and building.

"Thus the street presentation without a front driveway presents a superior design than most residential flat building developments in the area."

This proposal is available for public viewing and comments until October 29.
