Residents have until November 1 to make a submission on a major mixed used development proposed for 10 Young St, West Gosford.

The 5-14 storey development would include retail premises on the ground floor, a 32 room hotel and 58 residential apartments.

It seeks to provide accommodation for key workers, educators, post-graduates and staff of the nearby Gosford hospital, as well as residents of the surrounding Gosford locality, according to a Statement of Environmental Effects (SEE) lodged with the application.

The proposed high-quality hotel provider known as Punthill is expected to accommodate key workers, academics and specialists visiting the hospital as well as visitors to the adjoining Gosford Racecourse.

The SEE says the development is intended to act as the catalyst to the revitalisation to this portion of West Gosford.

Through the provision of a variety of commercial and activated uses along both Racecourse Rd and Young St and the Gosford CBD while also creating employment opportunities, the SEE says.

It says there will be an activated pedestrian pathway/laneway and public domain area along the southern boundary of the site.

Hotel facilities will include a gym, conference facilities, reception and lobby area.

The 58 residential apartments will include 51 two-bedroom and 7 three-bedroom apartments.

A total of 103 car parking spaces will be provided.

The Development Application and accompanying documents can be viewed electronically free of charge at any Service NSW Centre or on the Department of Planning Major Projects website.
