Are you building a retaining wall or a mtb track there ?
We're not building man, dickhead developers and council thought it was a good idea to put half a road on a property boundary next door, they had to terrace their block to make it level and all the overland water flow was blocked off and the drainage wasn't done properly.

Yep, our block is currently zoned for farming use but also zoned future industrial, the developers lied to the council and told them that they had a future contract to purchase our property which was BS.
You chasing compensation or removal?

Half of the road is on their land, who ever ends up developing ours will need to install the rest of the road and most likely have no say in it. You can't win against them because the council is on their side, it's big dollars and lengthy court cases to challenge pricks like this, Hight court stuff with Queen's councillors ($$$$$). All we can do is be a thorn in their arse.

That's insane. Not sure how something like that ever passed planning. Corruption.

Happens all the time here, the worst thing now is that we're partly liable for their dodgy retaining wall. The local council really made me laugh when they asked where the stormwater connection from the developments above was on our property, a private certifier signed off on the work that never happened.
Political donations!
Pretty much.

That is my profession and I can’t work it out.

Have seen a builder build a house on the wrong lot. Overseas owner and it reached roof framing before anyone realised the issue.

I'm in Surveying, so this stuff interests me. I usually see builders square off from the wrong pegs which sometimes ends in tears, but the wrong block.. only ever heard one other case of that happening.

Crazy corrupt.

Wow. The building and construction industry has a lot to answer for. If a mine did that, it would be on national media before it even happened.

This is what shits me .- no wonder Parks wanna lock dickheads out - of all persuasions , walking dead , camping dead , mtb'ing dead , horse dead
Just dead -heads in general .

if all the humans were culled- nature could bounce back



Ps ,
I feel for you after having a retaining wall collapse and wash my neighbours into my backyard - all houses from now one are at the top of a hill .
