Plans have been submitted to Central Coast Council to build six villas specifically for seniors at 139 and 141 Wallarah Rd, Gorokan.
The development application sets out how the proposal complies specifically with State Environmental Planning Policy (Housing for Seniors or People with Disability) 2004 in both exterior and interior design.
Consolidation of the two lots provides a total site area of 1,481sqm on the corner of Wallarah Rd and Grandview Pde and access to the villa complex would be from Grandview Pde.
The single-storey buildings would occupy only 42 per cent of the overall site and be set back 6m from both street frontages.
Each of the six villas would have single car garages as well as three visitor carparking spaces, including a disabled spot.
Security measures at the complex would include security gates, both pedestrian and vehicular, as well as monitored security cameras with back-up recording.
This proposal is in a low density residential zone where seniors villa development is permissible under the Local Environment Plan, subject to Council consent.
More details about the development proposal (DA/2340/2023) is available on Council’s website and public feedback is open until February 23.
