10.1  DIRECTOR, CITY PLANNING REPORT 12/2005 - 7-37 COOGEE BAY ROAD (6R AEOLIA STREET) RANDWICK.  (LS-0002/2005)

 

139    RESOLUTION:  (Andrews/Woodsmith) that authority be granted for the Council’s Seal to be affixed to the subdivision plan and accompanying Section 88b Instrument that relates to 7-37 Coogee Bay Road (6R Aeolia Street), Randwick.

 

MOTION: (Andrews/Woodsmith) SEE RESOLUTION.

 

10.2  DIRECTOR, CITY PLANNING REPORT 13/2005 - 10-18 BAY STREET,  

         COOGEE.  (DA 874/2004)

 

140        RESOLUTION:  (Notley-Smith/Nash) that:

 

A.      Council as the responsible authority refuse development consent under Section 80 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 (as amended) to Development Application No. 874/2005 for Demolition of the existing dwellings on the site,  and construction of a new multi-unit housing development comprising 15 units (13 x 2 bedroom and 2 x 3 bedroom units) over 4 storeys, basement carparking for 23 vehicles and associated landscaping including a swimming pool at 10-18 Bay Street, Coogee for the following reasons:-

 

1.       The proposed development is not consistent with the Aims and the Objectives of the Randwick Local Environmental Plan 1998 ("the LEP"), in particular clauses 2(g) and 12 (1)(c).

 

2.       The visual bulk of the proposed development will be dominant in the streetscape and to adjacent properties and would constitute an overdevelopment of the site, given its exceedance of the floor space ratio and height standards.

 

3.       The State Environmental Planning Policy No. 1 (SEPP 1) objection in relation to the proposed development’s departure of 970mm from clause 33(2) Overall Height and the 2.61m departure from clause (4) Wall Height of the LEP is not well-founded.

 

4.       No objection under State Environmental Planning Policy No. 1 (SEPP 1) has been lodged in relation to the proposed development’s departure (0.91:1) from clause 32(1) Floor Space Ratio (0.9:1) of the LEP. The non-compliance with the FSR standard results in an adverse impact on the streetscape and adjoining properties in terms of visual bulk and scale.

 

5.       The impacts of the proposed development on solar access and visual privacy to adjoining properties are unreasonable given that the development fails to meet statutory standards for height and floor space ratio and the objectives, performance requirements and preferred solutions for setbacks to all boundaries.

 

6.       The development is unsatisfactory with regard to the design quality principles of SEPP 65 – Design Quality of Residential Flat Development, in particular the principles of scale, built form, energy efficiency, density, amenity and aesthetics.

 

7.       The proposal does not meet the objectives of the Landscape Area standards contained within clause 31 of RLEP98, in that the layout of the development does not allow for substantial planting to the southern (front) setback and western (side) setback of the proposal to soften the appearance of the development from the street and adjacent properties.

 

8.       The basement carpark layout does not comply with Council’s DCP - Parking in relation to the width of carparking spaces and bicycle parking.

 

MOTION: (Notley-Smith/Nash)  SEE RESOLUTION.

MOTION: (Andrews/Woodsmith)  SEE RESOLUTION.

 

10.4  DIRECTOR, CITY PLANNING REPORT 15/2005 - 214 CLOVELLY ROAD, RANDWICK.  (D1102/2004)

 

142        RESOLUTION:  (Andrews/Tracey) that Council as the responsible authority refuse development consent under Section 80 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 (as amended) to Development Application No. 1102/2004 for addition of a new stainless steel wire trellis on top of the existing eastern and western side boundary walls at 214 Clovelly Road, Randwick for the following reasons:-
