ADW Johnson worked closely with the design team, led by CKDS Architecture in preparing the application to Gosford City Council for what is hoped to become a landmark development for the Gosford City Centre. As part of our role, ADW Johnson reviewed all previous records and reports for the site, including a previous Part 3A consent; numerous studies; and prepared the Statement of Environmental Effects.
The proposal involves the demolition of a number of vacant and derelict buildings within the site, including the former roller skating rink “Froggy’s”, and part of the former Brisbane Waters County Council (BWCC) building. The plans incorporate elements of the former BWCC building, which is Heritage listed, and is seeking variations to the current height and density limitations in the City Centre. In this regard, ADW Johnson wish to acknowledge the progressive stance taken by Gosford City Council in putting in place measures aimed at supporting such proposals in the City Centre – where appropriate. The entire application was prepared and lodged within a tight time frame, aimed at securing significant S.94 Contribution savings for the client.
