Council lodges application with itself for library changes

Central Coast Council has lodged a development application with itself to create an exhibition space in Woy Woy library.
The site in Blackwall Road is zoned B2 Local Centre and planning controls allow internal alterations to the existing library.
Some of the buildings on the site are listed as a local heritage item, but not the building that is the subject of the application.
“The site is located on the northern side of Oval Ave, on the corner of its intersection with Blackwall Rd.
“It is a flat parcel of land and is a rectangularly shaped allotment.
“The proposed works will not impact on any of the existing services or trees located on site.
“The proposed works will only be within the rear library building located in the north western portion of the site, adjacent to the existing carpark.
“This building is a single storey building originally constructed in 1938, with alterations including the current main library space being added in 2002.”
The application seeks approval for internal additions to create an exhibition space for local history memorabilia and a media room.
“The proposed works make no modification to the external structure of the building but will include construction of internal partitioning and doorway.
“Modifications are proposed to the ramp entry to the space and associated stair and balustrade.”
According to the application, the advice of Council’s heritage officer was sought and no adverse impact on the heritage item found.
