I am pleased to advise that the Director General has decided to grant his concurrence to the proposed building height above 11 metres.”
ExtentExtent ExtentThe height of the proposed building varies due to the topography of the site and the architectural design elements.The average building height is four storeys (height 14 metres to the roof ridge) with some components of the building being five storeys in height above ground level (height 17.2 metres to roof ridge).The departure from the requirements of Clause 139 (2) (b) of the Illawarra Regional Environmental Plan No. 1 1986 is also supported by Council due to the proposed development being of similar bulk, scale and height as the existing University of Wollongong main campus development which consists of a range of buildings 3, 4 and 5 storeys in height.

ClauseClause Clausec7.14 (1, 2) Minimum site width
JustificationJustification JustificationThe variation to the minimum site width will have only a minor impact upon both the surrounding development and the street frontage access arrangements for the proposed development. The reduced minimum site width has not prevented a suitable development from being designed for the site given the unusual shape of the allotment with a narrow frontage and much wider allotment dimensions behind the existing dwelling. In this regard the variation to the development standard, pursuant to Clause 4.6 of Wollongong Local Environmental Plan 2009, is well founded and therefore the proposal is considered acceptable with Concurrence being granted by the Director General on 9/12/11.

JustificationJustification JustificationThe applicant has provided sufficient reasons why the development standard is unreasonable in the circumstances of the case, and has provided sufficient grounds to justify contravention of the development standard.The development is considered to be in keeping with the existing development in the area which typically exceeds the 0.3:1 FSR. The proposal is considered to meet the objectives of the E4 Environmental Living Zone. The FSR will also meet the 0.5:1 FSR permitted in R2 Low Density zones found to the west of Hyde Lane.It is noted that the minimum lot size for the E4 Zone is 1000sqm, however the site and the surrounding properties are narrow with a much smaller site area. Compliance with the 0.3:1 FSR on the subject site, with its area of 404.7 sqm, could only allow a dwelling of 121.41sqm in floor area, which is unrealisticand unfeasible given the high land value of the area.Concurrence granted by Director General on 1/8/11.
