Proposed dual occupancy has small floor area

An attached dual occupancy has been proposed at 14 Bangalow St, Ettalong.

The claimed floor space ratio of 0.2:1 is well below the maximum allowed, which is 0.5:1.

Unit 1 has a ground floor area of 73.69 square metres , a first floor area of 79.60 square metres and a garage of 20.54 square metres.

Unit 2 has a ground floor area of 74.03 square metres, a first floor area of 80.05 square metres and a garage of 20.68 square metres.

The application, prepared by Approved Pty Ltd, states: "The site is rectangular in shape and displays a total frontage width of approximately 11.88 metres, and maximum depth of 49.39 metres.

"The site area is 548 square metres, oriented on a north to south long axis and is relatively flat.

"The site [currently] comprises a single storey dwelling house with scattered mature trees located in the southern portion of the site."

Each proposed dwelling would comprise "three bedrooms, master bedroom with ensuite and walk-in robe, balcony, combined open dining, kitchen and living area, lounge room, bathroom, alfresco, and single car garage".

"External finishes include Colorbond roofing with matched gutters and downpipes, weatherboard cladding, aluminium windows, and timber doors."

"Minimal earthworks associated with the installation of drainage infrastructure and establishment of the building foundation (concrete slab) are proposed, contained within the building footprint.

"No significant excavation is required to facilitate the proposal."

The application claims that both dwellings will feature individual vehicle access from Bangalow St.

It mentions that "new driveway access is required and will be sought under Section 138 of the Roads Act 1993".

However this is not detailed on any of the exhibited plans.

The application states that "a tree is required to be removed to allow the proposed development location".

"The subject tree species is a mulberry (non-native) and has been shown on the demolition plan."

However the "demolition plan" is also not included in the exhibited documents.

Although it is claimed that only one tree is to be removed, it does appear that the rear alfresco will be located under the canopy of existing trees.

The proposal claims compliance with the planning provisions.

Setbacks are listed as front 6.1 metres, side setbacks ground floor one metre, side setbacks first floor 1.7 metres, rear setback 11.06 metres.

"Each dwelling is provided with a minimum 3000 litre rainwater tank, with overflow directed to the legal point of discharge (street kerb).

"Given the size of the proposed rainwater tank relative to the roof area and re-use required to comply with Basix requirements, it is expected minimal overflow of water is to be experienced from the tank.

"The site is located within Flood Precinct 1, 2 and 3 and a flood information certificate is included in this application.

"The minimum floor level required is 2.07mm."

The application claims that as "the land is not mapped with a building height limit, a height limit of 10m applies".

"The proposed dwelling has a height limit of 7.29 metres above natural ground level and complies with this control."

However the NSW Planning Portal Spatial Viewer "height of buildings map" shows the property has a height limit of 8.5 metres.

The application concludes: "The proposal will be notified in accordance with the requirements of Council's community participation plan, providing opportunity for the public to comment on the development.

"All reasonable concerns raised in any submissions will be considered if deemed substantiated by Council."

The proposal is currently open for written submissions from the public.

The date that submissions close is not posted on Council's website.
