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

Just another reason to move. I suspect that - in spite of corruption investigations over the years - there are ‘Special’ builders and ‘Special’ certifiers that have enough familiarity with Council staff to circumnavigate (ie ignore) planning regulations on a regular basis. They commence building ‘illegal’ developments on that assumption. And they continue to do it with the assistance of Council staff. Our rates and the immense planning application fees that our Council collects are for compliance and monitoring- so what is happening? The Opal Towers fiasco is the tip of the iceberg. Contact your local councillors for an on-site meeting to express your concern, outrage and frustration with Council process - ask them what they are going to do about it. Calmly and politely of course.
