Central Coast Council will consider whether it will make its submission to the Joint Regional Planning Panel, in addition to its planning staff’s assessement.
Mayor Jane Smith has called for the assessment report to be referred for Council consideration before it is forwarded to the Joint Regional Planning Panel.
Mayor Smith has used a Mayoral Minute, to be debated at Council’s meeting on Monday, February 12, to formally bring the Sporties proposal to the attention of all elected councillors.
“DA53119/2017 relates to three parcels of land at 184, 186 Brick Wharf Rd and 1 North Burge Rd, Woy Woy,” the Mayoral Minute said.
“The application seeks development consent for Seniors Housing independent living units, a new club, retail tenancies and basement car park on the site.
“The application was on public notification from Thursday, October 26 to Thursday, November 16. [Peninsula News understands this period was extended to December].
“Ninety submissions objecting to the development have been received by Council and a presentation by local residents was made to Council at the Residents’ Forum on December 18.
“The development is being assessed by Central Coast Council staff, but will be determined by the Hunter and Central Coast Joint Regional Planning Panel.
“Council is able to make a submission on behalf of its local community for developments for which a Joint Regional Planning Panel is the consent authority.
“These submissions are separate from the assessment report written by Council staff.”
Councillors, excluding those on the Panel, will vote on the Mayor’s formal motion “that the Acting CEO refer the assessment report for DA53119/2017 Woy Woy Bowling Club to Council prior to being considered by the Hunter and Central Coast Joint Regional Planning Panel” and “that Council then determine whether it will make a submission to the Hunter and Central Coast Joint Regional Planning Panel in relation to this Development Application.”
