Good Evening

They have broad powers and they can enter land without notice.

There powers are granted by the local council and also the state government and various other acts.

If you suspect they should not be there you can lodge a complaint with the Manager of the council and you can also seek information about the purpose under freedom of information.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you wish a phone call please elect for one but be aware it will be an additional fee. If there is nothing further thank you for using my services.

If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know

If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.

Please do not forget to leave positive feedback.

Regards
Leon
