In Gateshead NSW on “Garage” at 21 Alder Crescent, Gateshead NSW 2290:

Beth Lane commented

When the illegal development on this property began early in 2015 excavation was carried out on the boundary line of our adjoining downhill sloping land. The "retaining wall" that they then constructed was not even built up to the same height as it previously was, I have photographs of the exposed fence posts they uncovered in their excavation. Consequently my land and fence is collapsing into the void that is left where there used to be land. I think this should be rectified before consideration of approving the illegal works to continue. I didn't think people were allowed to excavate on boundary lines, especially without even consulting the owner of the adjoining land or considering the effects that the excavating had regarding collapsing the neighbours land.
