Noticed on PDOnline yesterday a letter from a neighbour making statements about some fill we put into the yard nearly 20 years ago. The facts in this letter are wrong on many points. In particular it links another problem we had with the stormwater on the block to this event, when the plumber said the stormwater pipes had been blocked for many years. We ran new pipes and fixed the problem, but I don't like that these two things are now linked in a document that can be searched if there is ever a problem with drainage on the block. I've typed up a correct version and timeline. Clearly council has not taken much notice of the letter because it has not stopped approval, but my concern is that this document is now on the public record, and is quite wrong on detail and implications to their block (though the general story is correct). To cover ourselves going forward from any future claim of "this was caused by what they did 20 years ago", should we do anything? We could sign a stat dec. Should we lodge our own rebuttal letter, putting the facts straight, to be lodged and placed on the pdonline file and always available as a rebuttal. I'd like RPI's idea of how to deal with this, and more than happy to pay for a lawyer to advise us if necessary... Darryl?
