Revised application removes garage and second access
A revised development application for 1 Corrong Cl, Woy Woy, has removed plans to build a garage with access from Timbertop Dr.
The application proposes to carry out alterations and additions to the existing ground floor level and construct a new first floor level.
"When completed, the proposed dwelling will continue to be the primary residence for the current owner-occupants," it states.
The original application attracted a number objections to the provision of a second road access requiring mature trees to be removed.
Objections had also been received that the revised plans were ambiguous about whether the garage and Timbertop Dr access were still planned.
One stated: "All the documentation still mentions the proposed garage ... the only change appears to be the garage is not shown in the drawings.
"Is the applicant proposing to build a garage?
"Neighbours were not advised of the new development application, even though they were informed by a Council officer that they would be."
Another commented: "With reference to the newly submitted documents for 1 Corrong Close, Umina Beach, I was at first thrilled to see the at the garage had apparently been removed from the plans.
"Unfortunately further reading uncovered some mention of the concrete driveway, through 12 metres of council bushland.
"Items 2.5 and 4.2 refer to the garage or driveway, neither of which are indicated on the new drawings."
A third commented: "I would have thought that a resubmitted DA should be 100 per cent accurate and up to date with what is proposed to be built."
After these objections were submitted, a revised application was submitted without these references.
Item 2.5 now states: "Existing Access to Site: Access to the site is currently gained via number 1 Corrong Cl, Umina Beach."
Item 4.2 states: "Proposed Access to Site: The access to the subject site will remain from number 1 Corrong Cl."
However, the application still refers to "new attached garage area" of 49 square metres at item 3.2, although this is not shown or mentioned elsewhere.
