A construction certificate has been issued to allow construction to start on a five-bedroom group home costing $1.08 million at 17 Osborne Ave, Umina Beach.
The home was approved under delegation by Central Coast Council in July and construction certificate was provided by a private certifier this month.
The council was told that neighbour consultation was undertaken with residents of adjoining and surrounding properties.
The application to council said neighbours were also advised of the timing of the submission of the development application and that a letter and notification plans would be issued by council in coming weeks.
“The majority of neighbours appeared to support the proposed development and any queries were either answered during the door knock or via follow up queries with the contact details made available by the fact sheet,’’ the report said.
The permanent group home at Umina Beach is one of 78 new purpose-built specialist disability homes that will be built in the Hunter region by Home4Life.
