Help!!! we've got less than two weeks to review a massive subdivision planned for a hill behind us into 14 building lots. The Council has given public land to the Developer to access a previously land-locked steep slope behind our street, and we (myself and a dozen neighbours) will be overlooked by the 14 land lots proposed. I'd really appreciate some leads on how to find the relevant legislation and check whether the proposal meets the codes and how can we fight this: - can we demand indicative sun/shadow/ overlooking diagrams/3D models to show what the land will look like when developed? - can we request caveats on any buildings, to restrict building height to one storey? - can we put protection orders on the few trees the Developer is claiming will provide privacy? The trees are scarce and can easily be knocked over by 'accident'. What happens to our privacy if the trees go? - what part of the Legislation governs overlooking by windows onto neighbours? - what rights does the Council have to give public land to a private (for profit) development? The Developer states in the DA that the cost of works will be around $490K, and stands to make around $4.5M profit from sales It will be much easier to fight at this stage when the Developer is proposing to subdivide the land into building lots, than if we have to individually fight 14 different building applications when the building lots are sold. Thanks in advance, I'm just feeling overwhelmed by the task and simply don't have days required to research all of this atm. Thank you!
