In Petersham NSW on “Application under section...” at 20 Hopetoun Street Petersham NSW 2049:

Robert Davidson commented

Inner West Council confirmed that an occupation certificate has been issued. The owners moved in weeks ago and the compliance signs came down in August. The development has been signed off as complete, so this is not asking permission to change a development but is asking for back dated approval for breaching the development conditions.

This developer has been a serial nuisance - ignoring requirements for sediment barriers, runoff controls, damage to the paths and blocking the street. Rubbish and vermin have been an issue for the last 18 months and the council has ignored local complaints. Out-of-hours work is continuing on the site and council's response is "call the police".

If this 'modification' is approved it just shows that private certifiers have permission to set their own rules and that, at least for certain developments, IWC is not interested in taking any responsibility for what results.
