Development Application Reports

 

D31/19        Development Application Report - 15 Dutruc Street, Randwick (DA/477/2018)

 

RESOLUTION:

That the RLPP grant consent under Sections 4.16 and 4.17 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979, as amended, to Development Application No. 477/2018 for Alterations and additions to the existing dwelling including a basement floor level, at No. 15 Dutruc Street, Randwick subject to the development consent conditions attached to the assessment report with the following amendments:

 

·        Amend conditions 2 and 4 to read as follows:

 

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

 

a.   The southern edge of the entire planter at ground floor level shall be setback at least 1m from the southern side boundary and the terrace area to the southern side of the dwelling house adjacent to the play room shall be deleted. The BBQ area shall be relocated accordingly.

 

Details of compliance with the above conditions are to be submitted to and approved by the Manager Development Assessment prior to the issue of the construction certificate.

 

4.         a.    The colours, materials and finishes of the external surfaces are to be compatible with the existing building and adjacent development to maintain the integrity and amenity of the building and the streetscape.

 

b.    Details of the proposed colours, materials and textures (i.e. a schedule and brochure/s or sample board) are to be submitted to and approved by Council’s Manager Development Assessments prior to issuing a construction certificate for the development.

 

REASON:

The Panel has visited the site, considered the submissions (oral and written) 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 application for the reasons:

 

·        The proposal is consistent with the objectives contained within the RLEP 2012 and the relevant requirements of the RDCP 2013

·        The addition will not be prominent in the streetscape and will not impact on the main roof form, a key heritage consideration

 

·        Condition 2b is retained as the increased setback to the planter from the southern side boundary minimises the impact on the adjoining property

 

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

 

·        The Panel removed reference to condition 2a as it impacted on the turning capacity of vehicles in the basement and the Panel deemed that having the basement extend to the southern boundary would not have any adverse impacts on the neighbouring property

 

·        The Panel deleted reference to the certifying authority in condition 4a as it was considered more appropriate for Council to review and approve the colours and materials of the proposal.

 

CARRIED Unanimously.

 

 

 

D32/19        Development Application Report - 1B Yarra Road, Phillip Bay (DA/788/2018)

 

RESOLUTION:

A.     That the Randwick Local Planning Panel defers determination of the Development Application and invites the Applicant to submit an amended Clause 4.6 submission adequately demonstrating that: compliance with the development standard is unreasonable or unnecessary in the circumstances of the case; and that there are sufficient environmental planning grounds to justify contravening the development standard.

 

The amended Clause 4.6 submission should:

 

·        Correctly identify the minimum lot size referred to in Clause 4.1D of the Randwick Local Environmental Plan 2012 which references Clause 6.4(1)(d)(ii) in the SEPP Exempt and Complying Development; and

 

·        Addresses the purpose of Clause 4.1D of the RLEP.

 

The above information must be submitted to the Council by 11 August 2019 otherwise the application may be determined on the information currently provided. Following receipt of this information, the Panel will determine the application electronically.

 

REASON:

 

The Panel has visited the site, considered the Clause 4.6 application 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 has deferred determination of the application as it is not satisfied that the development application as proposed adequately addresses the requirements of a Clause 4.6 of RLEP 2012.

 

CARRIED Unanimously.

 

 

 

D33/19        Development Application Report - 25 Wansey Road Randwick (DA/108/2019) (DA/108/2019)

 

RESOLUTION:

The concurrence of the Director of the Department of Planning & Environment may be assumed.

B.      That the RLPP grant consent under Sections 4.16 and 4.17 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979, as amended, to Development Application No. 108/2019 for alterations and additions to the dwelling at 25 Wansey Road Randwick subject to the development consent conditions attached to this report.

REASON:

·        The internal views from the Level 4 north side facing living room (of No. 9 Seaside Parade) to Wedding Cake Island are already obscured by existing structures on the boundary between No’s. 5 and 7 Seaside Parade.

Miscellaneous Reports

 

M2/19         Miscellaneous Report - Planning Proposal: 18-26 Ascot St Kensington (RZ/1/2019)

 

RESOLUTION:

That the Local Planning Panel advises Council that it does not recommend support of the Ascot Street Planning Proposal submitted by Hamptons Property Services on behalf of developer Scape Australia Swanston Pty Ltd ATF Scape Australia (Kensington) Trust to amend Randwick LEP 2012 to increase the Height of Buildings Map from 12m on 18 Ascot Street Kensington and 21m on 20-26 Ascot Street Kensington to 31m and introduce a 4:1 ratio on the FSR Map on the land located at 18-26 Ascot Street, Kensington for the following reasons:

 

·     the proposal fails to meet the site-specific merit test due to the failure to consider the proposed financial arrangements for infrastructure provision in the draft K2K Planning Strategy and the K2K Planning Proposal;

 

·     a holistic approach, rather than an ad hoc planning proposal, for this significant corridor is the best, most efficient and most effective means of achieving a review of the planning controls that currently apply to the site;

 

·     changes to planning controls should be carried out comprehensively and holistically to ensure that benefits to the community associated with the additional housing, outweighs adverse community impacts;

 

·     the proposed heights and FSR controls in the K2K Planning Proposal are in draft form and yet to be formally placed on public exhibition and reviewed by the community and stakeholders. A decision on an individual site to adopt those controls (which are conditional upon payment of a CIC which itself cannot be applied unless provision is made within the amended RLEP following a determination of the K2K Planning Proposal) pre-empts the outcome of the consultation on the K2K Planning Proposal, thereby undermining the objectives of the EP & A Act and could lead to inconsistent streetscapes if changes are made to the controls in the K2K Planning Proposal after exhibition.

 

Notwithstanding the above, the Panel also advises Council of the following; that:

 

·        there are major community benefits in progressing with developments such as that proposed under the planning proposal;

 

·        higher density housing and transport corridors in highly accessible areas will provide more affordable accommodation and reduce road congestion in the Randwick LGA;

 

·        there will be economic and social benefits that will spread through the immediate business area and the broader LGA;

 

·        proposals such as this provide significant opportunities to meet an acute need for key worker and student accommodation;

 

·        the Panel encourages the proponent to negotiate now with Council around a planning agreement for tangible public and social benefits including through site links, public domain, affordable housing and urban design outcomes.

 

CARRIED Unanimously.

 

 

The meeting closed at 5:30pm.
