Increase in units approved
An increase in the number of residential units, from 23 to 30, has been approved for a six storey building at 62-64 Dening St and 1-3 Frances St, The Entrance.
The additional units will be achieved by internal layout modifications on levels 5 and 6, resulting in the overall development comprising one one-bedroom unit, 17 two-bedrooms and 12 three-bedroom units.
An additional car parking space will be provided in the basement level which will also be amended to include storage spaces for each unit.
The communal roof space has been deleted from the plan and replaced with a maintenance platform.
A Council report said the proposed modifications would result in a development that was substantially the same as that which was first approved.

Kitchen for wedding venue
Since receiving consent for a function centre in 2016, the owners of 49 Preston Rd, Kangy Angy, have successfully hosted about 28 boutique events a year.
In 2018, the property won a Highly Commended Brides’ Choice Award for the category of a garden wedding venue.
To ensure that the high standard of food and catering is maintained, the owners have purchased a mobile kitchen, semi-trailer unit, which they intend to install on the property.
Council is presently assessing an application to modify the original consent to allow the operation of the mobile kitchen.

Adventure course for The Glen
Ngaimpe Aboriginal Corporation, known as The Glen, has made application to Central Coast Council to establish an outdoor obstacle course on its 16ha property at 50 Church St, Tuggerah.
The site has been used since the 1950s as a centre for the provision of drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.
It was originally operated by the Salvation Army, and in 1994, the Ngaimpe Aboriginal Corporation took over the operation of the site as The Glen.
The proposed adventure race course, with about 20 obstacles, would be used by residents of The Glen for recreational purposes as well as the occasional event attended by sponsors or volunteers at The Glen.
Native vegetation will not be cleared to accommodate the course.
Wyong industrial units
Council has approved construction of four industrial units, offices and car parking on a site just over 1ha at 6 Lucca Rd, Wyong.
It is proposed to use the units for light industrial and/or warehouse and storage businesses.
The development, by Mystold Enterprises Pty Ltd, has an estimated value of $3.3m and will comprise two units across the rear boundary and another pair centrally located on the site.
Approval was granted under delegated authority on May 23.
Car steam wash approved for Toukley
Council has approved the operation of a motor vehicle steam wash business at 143 Main Rd, Toukley.
Mr S and Ms A Soultis propose to convert the vacant service station and garage on the corner of Tamar Ave and Main Rd.
The immediate locality predominantly contains low and medium density residential and mixed use business development including a florist, surfboard store, hairdresser, mechanic, homewares store and a car rental company.
Proposed hours of operation are from Monday to Friday, 9am to 4pm, and will be operated by two employees.
It is expected that six or seven cars will be cleaned per day.
Six strata flats in Wyong proposed
Jethsons Construction plans to demolish existing structures and build a new two-storey residential building at 49 Alison Rd, Wyong, at an estimated cost of almost $1.3m.
The six-unit development also includes strata title subdivision.
An old corrugated iron roof, fibro-clad, single storey cottage and partly constructed garage will be demolished.
Council had previously consented to a six-unit development, but that lapsed in 2010 without being constructed.
This new DA contains four first floor units with private balconies and two ground floor units at the rear of the building.
Each residence is provided with a single garage and storage area as well as additional shared parking and car wash bays.
There will be five three-bedroom units and one two-bedroom unit, all with access to a common outdoor area.
The application is still being assessed by Council.
Updated play space at McDonalds approved
McDonald’s at 8 Anzac Rd, Tuggerah, will get an updated play space and new signage throughout the site following consent from Council to go ahead with the project.
The primary purpose of the works is to upgrade and improve the amenity and appearance of McDonald’s, especially the Play Place area.
The play area will be enclosed and equipment replaced.
Changes to the signage will update the eatery to the “next gen” McDonald’s branding.
