Council to expand Bullion St carpark
Gosford Council has agreed to acquire and incorporate two house blocks into the adjacent Bullion St carpark in Umina.
It will prepare a planning proposal to include the house sites in Alfred St and Bullion St in the land reservation acquisition map of Gosford LEP 2014 so the land can incorporated into the existing council car park.
A report by planning staff to the council said that the proposal was recommended in a transport plan for the "Umina Beach Village Centre", which had resulted from the Peninsula Urban Directions Strategy.
According to the report, it was necessary to develop plans to maximise the benefits this new development can bring to centres like the Umina commercial area.
"Such plans have the aim of integrating building design, traffic management and public domain improvements; improving sustainability outcomes and achieving good quality community planning.
"The goal is to provide attractive development and, importantly, the physical and commercial renewal of the centres."
The strategy "recommended the extension of the business zone that applied to the Umina Beach Village Centre".
"It was identified that the extension of the business zone would result in associated changes to landuse patterns and the addition of floor space potential in the village which will alter the traffic and pedestrian usage patterns and levels within the centre.
"Infrastructure changes were identified to accommodate the growth potential of the centre.
"Council resolved to prepare a Transport Management and Accessibility Plan for the Umina Beach Village Centre."
The Plan recommended two properties, which adjoin the northern side of the large Council carpark located between Alfred St and Bullion St, be used for car parking purposes.
