Another petition bites the dust.

Well, yesterday we received another Letter of Refusal from the council; which, of course, means that the guy we're fighting with received another Letter of Refusal. Another battle won for us in this unending war between us and the guy who wants to build his five-bedroom house behind us with a three car garage (with spaces for two more cars). We saw where he took it all the way up to the State and was refused by them too.

Now he has completely destroyed the property behind us, cutting down every single tree, taking out the stumps so that they can't grow back, and leveling down to approximately four feet I guess just to make sure that nothing grows back again. What we are left with is piles of debris all around us and dirt - just dirt. It looks like a minefield. It looks absolutely dreadful.

However, he lost...again.

funny i swear i drop by to say hello last evening - or wee hours on this side - but didn't see this post, Alice. regardless, at least you's can take comfort with the fact that the tw*nt lost, innit :)

well, five bedroom and three car garage? is he bringing someone [read: bird] over from the philippines/indonesia/thailand with parents, cousins, grandparents, aunties/uncles, nephews/nieces, the dog and entire village too?

and no, i'm not being sarcy.

disclaimer: now, now before i get bashed from anyone, it's a *fact* isn't it [heard plenty of such from australia and nz too]? if not bringing the family/entire village over, the bloke would have to support them out of his pocket.

Wow Alicenot. I didn't know that you had any recourse but I'm glad to see that you won.

That's really too bad about the trees and stuff. Wonder if you ought to steal over there in the middle of the night and throw some lupine seeds around. Just like Miss Rumphius!!

I'm glad you won too, but I'll bet there's another application in the pipeline all too soon. That type of git never gives up.

What were the grounds for refusal this time?
