Early opposition to North Gosford disability housing DA

LEP and DCPs regulate development.

A Development Application for a 45-unit self-care housing project for seniors and people with disabilities has already attracted multiple letters of opposition, despite not yet having been formally lodged.

A Central Coast spokesperson said the application, from Benjo Enterprises, estimated to cost $16.8M, had a pre-lodgement review with a request for information forwarded to the applicant with further detail required prior to lodgement.

Nearby residents have been active in opposing the DA, for 40 Bradys Gully Rd, in its early stages

One submission said the development “seems to be a gross overdevelopment of the site and would most certainly have considerable adverse impact on neighbouring residences and result in loss of amenity for the residents.

It also had the potential to have a negative impact on the value of neighbouring properties, the submission said.

Residents are also asking if there will be consultation with owners of impacted properties and if consideration has been given to the protection and retention of significant trees at the front and rear of the property.

One resident was concerned over possible impacts on Bradys Gully Rd, which “is already in poor condition and in need of constant patching”.

Among other concerns raised are a loss of privacy to neighbouring properties, the project not being in keeping with the neighbourhood and possible impacts on the creek at the bottom of the property.

    Knowing the surrounding area I really doubt that anything could make the area worse. Amazing the lengths people will go to to prevent disabled people having a decent life.
