Booker Bay site to be levelled for dual occupancy
Central Coast Council has received an application for a four-bedroom "dual occupation development" at 40 Webb Rd, Booker Bay.
The structure would be a mixture of single and double storey with a cost estimate of $950,000.
The application prepared by Ms Sandra Trad of Apple Design states that a variation is sought for a "minor" departure from the building envelope requirements of the planning provisions.
All buildings occupying the site will be removed as they have no "significant architectural merit or historical significance and are currently in a level of disrepair".
There are a number of trees also to be removed, according to the site works plan.
These include a large angophora floribunda, two large jacaranda trees and three crepe myrtles.
The application concludes by stating that "The proposal is commended on its effort to provide a development that embraces the objectives of the planning instruments and control measures, and to understand the objectives when considering variations.
"The design employs with effectiveness the design guidelines of the Development Control Plan to create a functional development with high levels of amenity both for the end user and those it neighbours.
"This dual-occupation development is in a precinct well served by daily requirements of the resident, is well served by public transport, places no stress on public services and is rightfully in the public interest."
The application is exhibited for public submissions until November 5.
