Central Coast Council has recommended the Local Planning Panel rejects a review from owners wanting a modification of their building approval for 5-7 Church St Terrigal.
The applicants wanted a “Review of a Determination” for refusal of an application to modify an approved commercial premises and shop top housing development.
In June 2021, the Local Planning Panel refused a modification application for the addition of a fifth floor (Level 6) level on the approved building which would have resulted in an increase in the number of units from 12 to 13 and consequently a revised roof design, with an additional storey and enlarged terraces to the units on Level 5.
The applicant has provided information to address each of the reasons for refusal, including a legal opinion which states the development is substantially the same development to that which was originally granted development consent.
The site known as 5-7 Church Street, Terrigal, in the Terrigal Village Centre, with a primary street frontage to Church Street and rear site frontage to Hudson Lane, is currently under construction.
The site is one street back from Terrigal Esplanade – about a 130m walk to the beach.
The subject site previously contained a public car parking area for 33 cars.
The site was sold by Council in 2015 and construction work has physically commenced under consent.
The review of the previous determination is the only item on the local planning panel’s agenda for this Thursday, May 26, 2022.
The meeting starts at 2pm on youtube. Go to the Central Coast Council channel.
The first part of the meeting should be public if people have applied to address the panel on the issue.
