Council green lights another Yamba unit DA
By ADRIAN MILLER
YAMBA is set for another boutique development after the Clarence Valley Council approved a six-unit construction for Bent Street at its ordinary meeting on Tuesday.
The two-storey development will be built on land in between two parklands and will have uninterrupted river views.
The property's owner, Jan Dampney, said the units' design would be in keeping with the aesthetics of Yamba.
"Our architect's strength, John Carr, is his ability to intergrate property with land very well so the building looks like it's always been there," he said.
"It's a gateway property situated in between two parklands with really terrific views over the river."
To be called The Watermark, the units would feature quality fittings throughout, Mr Dampney said.
"They will be large apartments with three bedrooms, two full bathrooms with big balconies," he said.
"They're going to have ducted, reverse cycle air-conditioning, high ceilings, a swimming pool and a cabana incorporating a built-in barbecue."
Mr Dampney said a lift, as well as other design features were incorporated, making the units wheelchair compliant.
Mr Dampney said Yamba builder Edward Spears would be responsible for construction, which would begin early in 2006.
He said the units planned to be completed by the end of next year.
