Boarding house approved at North Gosford

A $4.67M boarding house has been approved for a site at 122 Henry Parry Drive, North Gosford.

The project got the nod from Central Coast Council on May 20 and will include 40 rooms and a manager’s residence, each with a full bathroom kitchenette and living area.

An existing brick and tile residence will be demolished to make way for the boarding house, which will accommodate 42 lodgers, with 38 single rooms and two double rooms planned.

The manager’s room will be located at the lower ground floor and provided with a private balcony.

A total of 21 carparking spaces will be provided on the basement and lower ground floor levels, including two accessible car parking spaces and one manager’s space.

There will also be eight motorbike and eight bicycle parking spaces.

Located near Gosford Private Hospital, the boarding house will be within close proximity of essential services within Gosford Town Centre, medical services allied with the private hospital, child care centres and schools.

Documents lodged with the application state that the three-storey building is consistent with Council’s height control and will positively contribute to the existing three-storey built form character along the western side of Henry Parry Dr.
