Council to vote on $19m Herarde Street apartment tower

Tuesday's Council meeting will see Eurobodalla councillors being asked to approve a development application for a residential flat building is proposed to be ‘L shaped’ with a stepped roof line to contain four, five and six storeys of 16 x 1 bedroom, 32 x 2 bedroom, 18 x 3 bedroom and 1 x 4 bedroom apartments and a basement car park of 93 spaces. Because the development application seeks a variation from the Eurobodalla Local Environmental Plan (ELEP) 2012 Clause 4.3 Height of Buildings from a maximum building height as 15m up to 21.71m the development standards, must be determined by the full Council. The exceedance to the 15m height limit represents approximately 18% of the total footprint. The remaining four levels are below the building height development standard. The building captures the northern aspect with the highest portion of the building on the corners of Beach Road and Herarde Street, then tapering down in height along the road frontages. Some view loss will result to those behind in Pacific Street and High Street however the report to Council says "there is no greater view loss of any significance caused by the building elements that project into and above the maximum height control and due to the topography of the land behind the site, disruption of views is minimised as the majority of properties sit above the site."

Above: The development may impinge on the views of some residences and guesthouses on the SW ridge behind however "due to the topography of the land behind the site, disruption of views is minimised as the majority of properties sit above the site."
