Central Coast Council Development appeal refused
McCullough Robertson recently received a great result from the New South Wales Land and Environment Court, confirming that the development appeal against our client, Central Coast Council, for proposed alterations and additions to a development commenced by Angolet Pty Ltd and Natva Investments Pty Ltd, was refused.
The court favoured the Council’s position that the modification would result in detrimental view ramifications which were not justified. The proceedings involved the developer’s appeal of the Council’s refusal of a modification application that sought approval for an additional storey for a penthouse apartment on the highly scenic 5-7 Church Street, Terrigal on the Central Coast located close to beach frontage. The case argued that the proposed modification would have adverse impacts on the view and that it would establish an undesirable precedent for the remainder of Church Street which remains to be fully developed.
Lead partner, Patrick Holland comments, “this is an exciting outcome in protecting small town beach frontage from overdevelopment which can be attributed to the Planning & Environment team’s efforts and those across the firm who lent a hand.”
