SHOALHAVEN City Council has received an application to increase the number of events a year at a temporary function venue at Terara.
Neil and Joanne Woolley, who own and operate Terara Riverside Gardens on Terara Road, have applied to modify development consent for the venue from operating 28 days a year to a maximum of 52 days a year.
The application has been made under the Shoalhaven Local Environment Plan 2014, which now permits the temporary use of land for a maximum period of 52 days in any period of 12 months.
The couple received approval to use their property as a temporary function centre in October 2013 to cater for a maximum of 100 guests.
In a letter to council the applicants said since the time of approval five functions have been held at the site and they had received no complaints about any of the functions.
The proposal does not seek to change the hours of operation or modify the marquee in which functions are held.
The applicants have addressed any possible issues such as noise impacts, effluent disposal and access and parking for vehicles in their submission.
