After much tooing and froing with our setback and moving it from 7.5m to 8.25m we will be getting our building permit tomorrow. We had hoped to move our setback forward, but that would require a dispensation from Council which will take months. Only slightly annoyed as Council told us to include the setback on the plans for the building permit and it would be approved through that process. Its only 75cm, but it’s crazy how much land is wasted on front yards – I really don’t see the point of them!
I have suggested to hubby we put our veggie garden in the front yard and do something useful with it!
