Old brick home to make way for two modern units

Projects, Town Planning

RG Strategic have lodged a town planning application for the Material Change of Use of 52 Peregian Esplanade, Peregian Beach, for a dual occupancy dwelling.

Currently the sloping large site of 830 sqm holds an existing two-story masonry single dwelling. The existing dwelling will be demolished, and a three-storey duplex will replace it on the site.

The application we submitted constitutes a Material Change of Use (Code Assessment) which will encompass the following elements:

  • Removal of the existing detached dwelling and associated structures;
  • Development of architecturally designed Dual Occupancy consisting of 1 x 4-bedroom dwelling (unit 1) and 1 x 3-bedroom dwelling (unit 2); and
  • Basement carparking.

Uniquely, the configuration of the proposed duplex is not side by side, but one unit per floor. Additional development intent includes:

  • 1 x crossover and basement garage for 4 vehicles,
  • 1 x common swimming pool,
  • Extensive landscaping of the site, including the whole perimeter of the lot.

The proposed plans for the new duplex at Peregian Esplanade will require some relaxations of the Noosa Plan 2020. There is some minor encroachment to setbacks front and rear.

The application is assessable as some design parameters exceed Noosa Plan stipulations, in particular setbacks to the rear and sides.

We have sought a relaxation to the rear boundary setback for the basement, a pergola and a minor variation for a window hood and level 1 eave.

A small arbour is proposed near the front boundary within the front 6m setback.

Importantly, 99% of the development complies with the relevant Acceptable outcomes noting the development is under the permitted gross floor area, site cover and is within the building height in metres prescribed.

The duplex development allows privacy for each unit but retains the outlook for both over the esplanade.

Russell and team worked tirelessly to help get our business up and running. With all facets of licensing and council approvals their expertise and tenacity are invaluable. We couldn’t have set up without them. I would strongly recommend for any new project. Russell had our liquor license, food license, and plumbing approval organised extremely fast and smooth. Any obstacles that arose were navigated quickly and gave me confidence and peace of mind to move forward.
