    Building a structure against your neighbours boundary with no set back is infringing upon their respectable space. The structure proposed is much higher than a shed. This is creating undesirable shadow over the neighbour.

    It is also a very intrusive building for those around this property that can see this building.

    Along Northcote street no other neighbours are permitted to build in the flood zone. Please do not set a precedent where people are building against rules set out to protect against disastrous outcome. This is clearly breaking compliance in so many ways.

    I wondered why it wasn't parrallel to the boundary and then realised the "Proposed Studio" is actually "Unauthorised Building Works". Clearly they decided it was less restrictive if they did what they want rather than ask permission.

  3. Rohan McPherson commented

    I live in a neighbouring property and can sympathise with Cameron Long’s position. The ‘studio’ is largely built and the owner obviously wants to maximise structures on the property. To try to build this structure without permission is reprehensible. For the council not to push for a demolition order, given this illegal and unsafe structure (built in a flood prone zone and a fire hazard for Cameron’s property given built on boundary and into garden/foliage) would be equally reprehensible.
    It is also an eyesore for neighbours.
