Development Application Reports

 

D59/18     Development Application Report - 80 Yorktown Parade, Maroubra (DA/244/2017)

 

REASONS:

The Panel has visited the site, considered the submissions and reviewed the assessment report prepared by Council officers that addresses the relevant matters detailed in Section 4.15 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979, as amended.

 

The Panel supports the exceptions to development standards under Clause 4.6 of Randwick Local Environmental Plan 2012 and adopts the recommendation in the report for the following reasons:

 

·                The proposed development satisfies the matters for consideration under Section 4.15 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979, as amended;

 

·                The proposal is consistent with the objectives contained within  the RLEP 2012 (including the objectives of the R3 medium density residential zone) and the relevant requirements of the RDCP 2013

 

·                The proposal is consistent with the relevant provisions within SEPP 65

 

·                The scale and design of the proposal is considered to be suitable for the location and is consistent with the desired future character of the locality.

 

·                All matters required to be addressed under clause 4.6(4) of Randwick Local Environmental Plan 2012 have been demonstrated.

 

RESOLUTION:

A.     That the RLPP is satisfied that the matters required to be addressed under clause 4.6(4) of Randwick Local Environmental Plan 2012 have been demonstrated and that consent may be granted to the development application, which contravenes the building height development standard in Clause 4.3 of Randwick Local Environmental Plan 2012. The concurrence of the Director of the Department of Planning & Environment may be assumed.

 

B.     That the RLPP grants development consent under Sections 4.16 and 4.17 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979, as amended, to Development Application No. DA/244/2018 for the demolition of all structures on site and construction of a 3 storey residential flat building comprising of 9 dwellings including 3 affordable housing units, ground and basement level parking for 12 vehicles, strata subdivision, associated site and landscaping works and boundary fence (variation to building height control), at No. 80 Yorktown Parade, Maroubra, subject to the development consent conditions contained in the assessment report.

D60/18     Development Application Report - 338-342 Clovelly Road, Clovelly (DA/592/2017)

 

REASONS:

The Panel has visited the site, considered the submissions and reviewed the assessment report prepared by Council officers that addresses the relevant matters detailed in Section 4.15 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979, as amended.

 

The Panel notes that whilst the proposal does not comply with the numerical external wall height requirement in the RDCP 2013, the development complies with the building height development and floor space ratio development standards.

 

The panel has considered the issues raised on behalf of the adjoining property owner at 344-350 Clovelly Road regarding how the proposed development may impact on its development potential and has determined that the balcony and balustrade located directly in front of the three awning windows on the eastern elevation of the dining room on all levels should be deleted. This will ensure that the future development of the adjoining site will be in accordance with the relevant provisions of SEPP 65 and Council’s DCP is not unreasonably prejudiced.

 

To minimize the impact of the construction traffic on the adjoining businesses, the panel considers that conditions 37 & 51 should be amended to require the construction hours to be determined after consideration has been given to the Construction Traffic Management Plan.

 

The panel notes that condition 32 requires a dilapidation report which addresses the concerns of the objector

 

For the reasons outlined in the assessment report, the Panel adopts the recommendation in the report. Subject to:

 

·         condition 2 being amended to require deletion of that part of the balconies directly in front of the three awning windows on the eastern elevation of the dining room on all levels; and correct a typographical error in condition 2a and 2b (north eastern changes to north western),

 

·         conditions 37 & 51 being amended to require the construction hours to be determined after consideration has been given to the construction management plan.

 

Deletion of the roof terrace (as detailed on the amended plans) is fundamental to the approval of this application.

 

RESOLUTION:

That the RLPP grants development consent under Sections 4.16 and 4.17 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979, as amended, to Development Application No. DA/592/2017 for demolition of existing structures, construction of a 4 storey residential flat building containing 4 dwellings, basement carparking for 6 vehicles, roof terrace, lap pool at ground level, landscaping and associated works, at No. 338-342 Clovelly Road, Clovelly, subject to the development consent conditions contained in the assessment report with the following amendments:

 

Amend conditions 2, 37 and 51 as follows:

 

  1. The approved plans and documents must be amended in accordance with the following requirements:

 

a.     A 3.25m long privacy screen shall be provided along the western side of Level 1 and Level 2 front balconies running from the north western corner of the living room. The privacy screens shall be full height screens running from floor level to the underside of the balcony above.

 

b.     The Level 3 balcony along the western side of the living room shall be converted into non-trafficable area. A 3.25m long privacy screen shall be provided along the western side of Level 3 front balcony running from the north western corner of the living room.

 

c.      Privacy screen/s must be constructed with either:

 

·         Fixed lattice/slats with individual openings not more than 30mm wide;

·         Fixed vertical or horizontal louvres with the individual blades angled and spaced appropriately to prevent overlooking into the private open space or windows of the adjacent dwellings.

 

d.     The part of the balustrade located directly in front of the three awning windows on the eastern elevation of the dining room on all levels shall be deleted and the area converted from a balcony to a non-trafficable area.

 

Details showing compliance with this condition shall be submitted to Council’s Manager of Development Assessments prior to a Construction Certificate being issued for the development.

 

51.     Building, demolition and associated site works must be carried out in accordance with the following requirements:

37.     An application for a ‘Works Zone’ and Construction Traffic Management Plan must be submitted to Councils Integrated Transport Department, and approved by the Randwick Traffic Committee, for a ‘Works Zone’ to be provided in Clovelly Road for the duration of the demolition & construction works. 

 

The ‘Works Zone’ must have a minimum length of 12m and extend for a minimum duration of three months.  The suitability of the proposed length and duration is to be demonstrated in the application for the Works Zone.  The application for the Works Zone must be submitted to Council at least six (6) weeks prior to the commencement of work on the site to allow for assessment and tabling of agenda for the Randwick Traffic Committee.

 

The requirement for a Works Zone may be varied or waived only if it can be demonstrated in the Construction Traffic Management Plan (to the satisfaction of Council’s Traffic Engineers) that all construction related activities (including all loading and unloading operations) can and will be undertaken wholly within the site.  The written approval of Council must be obtained to provide a Works Zone or to waive the requirement to provide a Works Zone prior to the commencement of any site work.

 

         The detailed Construction Traffic Management Plan must be submitted to and approved by Council, prior to the commencement of any site work.

·                 Any proposed road and/or footpath closures

·                 Proposed site access locations for personnel, deliveries and materials

·                 Size, type and estimated number of vehicular movements (including removal of excavated materials, delivery of materials and concrete to the site)

·                 Provision for loading and unloading of goods and materials

·                 Impacts of the work and vehicular movements on the road network, traffic and pedestrians

·                 Proposed hours of construction related activities and vehicular movements to and from the site, particularly to minimise impacts in the locality on a Saturday.

·                 Current/proposed approvals from other Agencies and Authorities (including NSW Roads & Maritime Services, Police and State Transit Authority)

·                 Any activities proposed to be located or impact upon Council’s road, footways or any public place

The approved Construction Site Traffic Management Plan must be complied with at all times, and any proposed amendments to the approved Construction Site Traffic Management Plan must be submitted to and be approved by Council in writing, prior to the implementation of any variations to the Plan.

 

 

CARRIED Unanimously.

 

 

 

D61/18     Development Application Report - 118-120 Garden Street, Maroubra (DA/30/2018)

 

REASONS:

The Panel has visited the site, considered the submissions and reviewed the assessment report prepared by Council officers that addresses the relevant matters detailed in Section 4.15 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979, as amended.

 

The panel does not support the applicants request to defer determination of the application, as the amendments tabled at the meeting would not adequately address the reasons for refusal as set out below.

 

RESOLUTION:

That the RLPP refuse development consent under Section 4.16 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979, as amended, to Development Application No. DA/30/2018 for demolition of existing structures and construction of a 4 storey shop top housing development comprising a ground floor retail premises, 3 office premises, 7 residential units, semi-basement parking, roof terraces and associated landscaped works at No. 118-120 Garden Street, Maroubra for the following reasons:

 

·           The development as currently proposed is prohibited in the B2 Local Centre zone. However, it is noted that this could be overcome by designating the ground floor premises as business premises and demonstrating that the design, access and layout is suitable for a business use.

 

·           The request pursuant to Clause 4.6 of the Randwick Local Environmental Plan 2012 to vary Clause 4.3 height of buildings is not well founded and does not adequately demonstrate the requirements of clause 4.6 (4).

 

·           Adequate regard has not been given to the design quality principles of the State Environmental Planning Policy No 65—Design Quality of Residential Apartment Development.

 

·           Adequate regard has not been given to the objectives and design criteria of the Apartment Design Guide with regards to visual privacy, communal open space at ground level and maximum habitable room depths.

 

·           The proposed development does not comply with the Randwick Comprehensive Development Control Plan 2013 key building envelope controls including number of storeys, building depth, building separation, lack of solar shading to north, east and west-facing windows and unrelieved facades / articulation.

 

·           The proposed development does not comply with Randwick Comprehensive Development Control Plan 2013 key design controls relating to amenity of communal open spaces, height of the sub-basement above natural ground level, shared residential and retail / office premises access, and poor integration of service elements as part of the rooftop terrace.

 

·           The proposed development will result in adverse visual amenity impacts to surrounding properties.

 

·           The proposed development will result in unreasonable overshadowing to the southern adjoining property.

 

·           The proposed development does not comply with car parking rates specified by State Environmental Planning Policy No 65—Design Quality of Residential Apartment Development and the Randwick Comprehensive Development Control Plan 2013, having a shortfall of 3 car parking spaces.

 

CARRIED Unanimously.
