Construction certificate issued for three units

A construction certificate has been issued for a multi-dwelling housing development in Umina.
The certificate has been issued for a three-unit development and demolition of the existing house at 22 South St, Umina.
The development application was lodged in April 2017.
The 790 square metre site has a width of 15.24 metres and is 51.8 metres deep.
It is located on the western side of South St and is relatively flat.
It contains a single dwelling-house which is to be replaced by three townhouses.
Each townhouse will have front courtyard fencing, driveway, double garage, entry, living, dining and kitchen area located on the ground floor with bedrooms, bathrooms, siting rooms and adjoining balconies located on the first floor.
Vehicular access will be via a driveway running along the southern boundary and separate garages are provided for each with the rear dwelling obtaining vehicular access via an unnamed lane.
One submission from an immediate neighbour was received by Council in relation to the development.
The neighbour requested special provision for off-street visitor parking and construction of a retaining wall or fencing between the two properties.
Council approved the proposed development in September 2017 with a five-year timeframe for commencement.
A condition of consent was the erection of a 1.8 metre boundary fence.
