Four-unit development planned adjacent to bowls club

Central Coast Council has received an application for a four-unit multi-dwelling development at 113-115 Springwood St and 1A Brittania St, Ettalong, at an estimated cost of $1,82 million.

The application was prepared by WPP Planning and Property for the landowners, Ettalong Memorial Bowling Club.

It states: "It is proposed to construct four new single-storey attached residential units fronting Britannia St.

"Each unit will have an area of 111.6 square metres and will include in individual pedestrian access from Britannia St or Springwood St, a separate rear entrance from the driveway and a double garage."

They would have "open plan living, dining and kitchen; three bedrooms with built-in robes, including a master suite with ensuite bathroom; and a bathroom and laundry cupboard".

They would also have a courtyard, with units one and four having an additional terrace, and an outdoor utility area with a clothesline, bin storage area and rainwater tank.

"The units will be setback by a minimum of 10 metres from the northern property boundary, six metres from the eastern boundary (Springwood St), 2.8 metres from the southern boundary (Britannia St) and 4.1 metres from the western boundary."

From these figures, it would appear that the "front" of the development is regarded as Springwood St, where the vehicle and main pedestrian entrance is located, and the "rear" would be the western boundary.

The courtyards on two sides fronting local roads would appear to be contrary to planning provisions which state: "Ground level courtyards are not permitted within the front building setback area fronting local roads."

The application states: "The proposal relies on a combination of 1.8 metre walls and screening plantings between and around private open space areas and along the street frontages to provide privacy for residents within the site.

"Given the orientation of the proposed units away from the internal driveway, no adverse privacy impacts are anticipated to arise from any potential future residential development of the Club site to the north."

The application states: "There are four trees located within the site and an additional eight trees located within the road reserve (predominately angophora floribunda)".

The proposal includes the "removal of three trees within the site and retention and protection of eight remaining trees within the road reserve"

The north side of the building is predominantly taken up with garage doors.

The development provides full length clerestory windows to all units to bring sunlight into interior spaces.

However, the private open spaces for units two and three are located on the southern side of the building, and appear to receive little or no sunshine during the winter months.

The application states: "There are no unreasonable impacts that will result from the proposed development and it will respect the character of the local area in terms of scale, materiality and built form.

This proposal is currently on public exhibition, with submissions closing on October 24.
