Which council is it? Did they ever give you anything in writing?
If so, can you please scan and attach it?
Sorry I have been off line for a while. The Council is Knox City Council in Melbourne Victoria.
The covering letter you see included in these documents is the original which I opened on returning from overseas during the week of February 10th 2013.
There was another letter after this date when the council Inspector came when I was overseas,which all of the other documents were attached to. I cannot seem to find it sorry. I also requested an extension of time for as follow up extension initially because I had been overseas and was finding it difficult to get some one to help with the gate closing mechanism and the pailings on the fence to make it child proof. As for some of the other items including the lattice. When another inspector came out said he didn't even know why the first inspector mentioned that as he couldn't see an issue.My doors leading out to the pool area have always been the same double doors where internally in one there is lock going up pinto the cavity on top of the door and at ground level. i cannot even open it without a screw driver . They now want something screwed under the lock to prevent it being opened at all. all doors have a key lock as well at waist height. This is all the original fixtures and fittings. My windows also have fly wire screens which have two black loops inside that need to be pulled in tightly to get them over a small drawing pin type of set up. A child can not open this they want this changed also.
I am really looking forward to getting your advice Alex as I am totally frustrated.
many thanks and a very Happy Easter to you and your family. :-)
Alex it doesn't appear to have the capabilities for me to attache multi pages? Can you please guide me here, with thanks.
The best way is to scan and email it. Please email it to:
And ask them to forward it to Alex in the Australia law group. This can take up to 24 hours. And happy Easter to you as well.
I hope that my email finds you very well. It has been quite some time now since I scanned and emailed those documents to you atXXX@XXXXXX.XXX.
Do you have any answers for me at this stage please?
I look forward to hearing back from you with thanks
I am afraid that since this had taken so long to get areply Council came back again. I have just noticed this week though that the payment has been taken from my credit card, which I am not happy about as I had no results given. Can you please arrange a refund as soon as possible please. Many thanks Carrol :-)
