Today's post from our building inspection department is short and sweet - but important.
When you receive your building or development permit (they're printed on yellow paper) please post the permit in a prominent location.
This lets everyone know that you've been a good, law-abiding, permit-obtaining citizen.
It also does help our inspectors find your site when they are out and about doing field work.
Oh, yeah, it's also the law: by regulation, neighbours can appeal a building permit during a period from 10 days after it's been posted.
Now, we know that the lovely yellow paper doesn't fare well against wind, rain and the other elements. (Please, we know the white stuff is coming, but allow us our denial.)
So consider popping the permit inside a plastic binder protector. Or photocopy it. Or put on the inside of a window.
Thanks - and happy building!
