Just a general post about another example of council incompetence. Selling my propery which is in final stages of subdivison and a keen buyer met with council to discuss putting a carport over the new driveway I put in. Council responds to them NO you cannot put a carport over it and the owner does not even have a permit for the second crossover. My agent calls me and advises me this so I look through my inbox find councils approval. I then call council for a please explain. Planner looks at my plans and says "yep everything perfect here, all permits approved, not sure who told them that"... The buyers pulled out, admittedly the carport which I did know would not be allowed (I would have put one if it were) was the main reason but I'm sure the "No Permit" didn't help! The incompetence from councils really does blow my mind!
