We have a loo

We drove past our land last week and discovered that a port-a-loo had been delivered. We thought that this was a little premature considering that we only just went into council and potentially won't start building for another 2-3 months.

I rang my CSR to see what she knew about it and she said it wasn't right as the SS is the one to order that and we haven't even been assigned on as yet! She just advised us to ring the number on the loo as it's probably been delivered to the wrog site in error.

So we call the number... And it's not correct! Oh well I guess the loo might be staying for a bit longer.

This weekend I had my first contact with my direct neighbour. We have received a quote and request to go ahead for fencing. Their house is almost complete and of course they'd like their fencing completed which I understand.

I just have to follow up with them and they have only provided me with the 1 quote (the one they have chosen) and also I think it's the wrong type of fencing but I'm sure that we can sort that out :)

DA Finally Receipted by Council

After two weeks our DA has been receipted by council. Notifications and Referrals went out yesteday (all due back within the next 2 weeks) actual determintation not due until mid-May. Fingers crossed for earlier though - it could be touch and go on a couple of points though so will just have to see how picky they are being.

No progress - none at all

Well of course it's only been a little over a week since our builder submitted our plans to council but during this time council has done nothing, not even receipted it. I was concerned that the DA may have been lost in the mail but no, our builder has called and confirmed with council that they have received the plans but they have still done nothing with them. I can't believe that it's allowed to just sit there. we could have our neighbour notifications & bushfire advice requests out there now.

I just wonder how much longer we'll have to wait.

Was frustrated, now just sad.
