Artarmon @ council

A DA (DA-2012/3) has been submitted for “use and fitout of existing restaurant and associated works including change of hours to 7:00 AM to 12 midnight” at 100 Hampden Rd. The submission is a full DA for a new licensed café and restaurant with 112 seats, including 68 inside, 16 at two proposed bars and 38 at two proposed external patios at the back of the site. This DA does not appear to have any link to an earlier DA submitted in January 2010 (DA-2010/841) (see November 2010 Gazette, p 14). The present proposal does not seek any modifications to the Hampden Rd façade. Any proposed additions to the back and internal changes would not affect the streetscape. The two external patios would be open to the residential buildings on the west side of Hampden Lane.

A DA (DA-2012/432) has been submitted for a four 3-bedroom townhouse development with basement garages at 2 Cleland Rd, next to the proposed development at 1-3 Parkes Rd (see February 2012 Gazette, p 4). The proposed FSR is slightly lower than the maximum required. The proposed townhouses are a 2-floor, split-level type, aligned to Parkes Rd. The DA allows only for three parking lots where five is required. A new footpath crossing has been proposed for this and the next-door development in Parkes Rd, putting more pressure on parking in the area.

(DA-2012/69), 143 Artarmon Rd: proposal for two prefabricated steel frame and PVC coated canvas carport covers. The two carports are in “tandem” arrangement and the proposed covers would not extend closer to the street than the existing house on the site. However, the view from Artarmon Rd would reveal an obvious discrepancy with the existing buildings and probable inconsistency with the heritage area.

(DA-2012/150/A) Cleland Tennis Club: extension of tennis club’s operation hours approved under DA-2011/150 of April 2011.

(DA-2012/47), 1 Lanceley Pl: widening of existing ramp to top floor. No documents are on the council site. The building is in the Artarmon industrial area and the ramp is from Level 2 so no adverse effect is expected to the general public or the adjoining properties.
