1.       Introduction

 

The subject Development Application (DA) was considered at the Randwick Local Planning Panel (RLPP) meeting on 10 December 2018.  At the meeting, it was resolved:

 

“A.     That the RLPP defers determination of Development Application No. 367/2018 for alterations and additions to the existing dwelling house to include a secondary dwelling (heritage conservation area and variation to development standard for a secondary dwelling), at 4 Govett Street, Randwick, pending submission of the following

 

1.       Landscape plans showing soft planting within the Govett Street setback and the triangular planter at the western corner of the site

 

2.       A boundary survey by a registered surveyor

 

3.       Amended plans showing:

·    All works being located wholly within the subject site

·    Reinstatement of the verandah on the Govett Street frontage

·    The front fence being replaced with a design more sympathetic with the heritage conservation area.

·    Removal of the fence above the garage along the Govett Lane frontage and replacement with a 1 metre wide planter in front of a 1.2 metre high balustrade.

 

4.       Details of the colours, materials and finishes. These details shall be sympathetic with the conservation area

 

B.    That the additional information be submitted Council with 8 weeks of this resolution.”

 

2.       Issues

 

Applicant submitted additional information including amended plans on 21 January 2019 and the following comments are provided in response to the Panel’s resolution:

 

The following additional information, received by Council, has been addressed.

 

1.       Landscape plans showing soft planting within the Govett Street setback and the triangular planter at the western corner of the site.

 

Satisfactory – The landscape plan has been amended to show soft planting within the Govett Street setback.  The landscaped area has a depth of 2m within the front setback and is approximately 18m in length.

 

2.       A boundary survey by a registered surveyor.

 

Satisfactory – A boundary survey and an identification survey prepared by BPS Surveyors have been submitted, which clearly shows the location of the site boundaries and the existing structures.

 

3.       Amended plans showing:

a)       All works being located wholly within the subject site.

 

Satisfactory – The amended plans demonstrate that all works are located wholly within the site of No. 4 Govett Street and there are no encroachments to No. 6 Govett Street.

 

Condition 2(b) of the original set of conditions require a void area to be provided however, the amended plans show the void located above the staircase which is considered acceptable and therefore, condition 2(b) can be deleted.

 

Condition 6 of the original set of conditions require the projecting porch hood to the secondary dwelling be redesigned as a simple flat projection. The amended plan shows the projecting porch hood being a simple flat roof design and is considered to be satisfactory and therefore Condition 6 can be deleted.

 

b)       Reinstatement of the verandah on the Govett Street frontage.

 

Satisfactory – The amended plans demonstrate that the verandah will be reinstated.  Therefore, conditions 4 and 5 of the original conditions have been deleted and are not part of the revised conditions.

 

c)       The front fence being replaced with a design more sympathetic with the heritage conservation area.

 

Satisfactory – The amended plan shows the existing precast concrete block fence to be removed and replaced with painted timber pickets, up to 700mm in height.  The two existing wrought iron gates are to remain unaltered. As such, Condition 2(a) of the original set of conditions is deleted. 

 

d)       Removal of the fence above the garage along the Govett Lane frontage and replacement with a 1 metre wide planter in front of a 1.2 metre high balustrade.

 

Satisfactory – The amended plans demonstrate that the existing steel balustrade will be retained and four large pots are to be provided in front of the existing balustrade, in lieu of the planter box, as requested by the RLPP.  The pots are relatively large and a condition is included that requires the pot plants to remain in the nominated location and must not be removed prior to development consent. 

 

4.       Details of the colours, materials and finishes.  These details shall be sympathetic with the conservation area.

 

Satisfactory – The amended plans provide details of the external finishes and colours and have been reviewed by Council’s Heritage officer with the response being “The amended drawings which have been received satisfactorily address the requirements of consent conditions”.  The external materials and finishes will match the existing colours and therefore, Condition 7 has been deleted from the original set of conditions.

 

3.       Referrals

 

Council’s Heritage Officer and Development Engineer were referred the amended plans for their review and comments and are satisfied with the additional information submitted.  As per the referrals, condition Nos 4 to 7 have been deleted from the original set of conditions.  The revised set of conditions are attached under Attachment 3.

 

4.       Submissions

 

The owners of adjoining property lodged a further submission based on the amended plans that were submitted as part of the Panel’s requirements.  The points raised in the submission have been addressed in the table below.

 

§  6 Govett Street, Randwick

 

Issue

Comment

Council’s consideration of the plans, when submitted for the Construction Certificate, be consistent to the Survey Plan, submitted to Council on 14 January 2019.

Conditions are included in the Development consent to ensure that the plans submitted as part of the Construction Certificate be consistent with the plans that were approved in the DA and there will be no encroachments to No. 6 Govett Street.

Inconsistent setback to boundary between the amended plans and the updated boundary survey.

The Applicant has stated that the amended plans include an updated boundary survey that “shows the 18cm gap between boundary and No. 6 Govett Street house wall and the existing wall on Govett Lane of No. 6 Govett Street – requiring the pergola to be 18cm off the wall, as shown on the revised plans.”

A condition has been included to for all of the works to be located wholly within No. 4 Govett Street and do not encroach the boundary, as per the Survey Plan.

All of the changes that have been made have been demonstrated on the amended plans however, the correction of the boundary line at the rear has not been clearly outlined on the plans.

BPS Surveyors has completed an Identification Survey – Eastern Boundary Line (only), received by Council on 14 January 2019.  This demonstrates the boundary between No. 4 and No. 6 Govett Street and that the works of the subject DA will be wholly within their property.

 

Relationship to City Plan

 

The relationship with the City Plan is as follows:

 

Outcome 4:           Excellence in urban design and development.

Direction 4a:          Improved design and sustainability across all development.

 

Financial impact statement

 

There is no direct financial impact for this matter.

 

 

 

 

 

5.       Conclusion

 

The amended plans have satisfactorily addressed the requirements of the Panel’s resolution and no objections have been raised by Council’ Heritage Officer and Development Engineer. The application is therefore recommended for approval subject to the revised set of conditions as per Attachment No. 3.
