Hi, It looks like you accidentally started a new thread instead of replying to the original, so Ill reply here. You still haven't answered my two questions about who oversaw the build and how did the builder end up building to the amended plans? Q1) Who selected the builder and oversaw the works? a...

Clare Rather than start a number of new threads, just try and reply to your existing thread. It saves the site getting blocked up and makes everything easier to follow I wanted to reply on the original thread - in answer to a question put to me. It would not let me post this reply as it said one ca...

As for how I didn't know - no one told me they were substituting falsified documents for the Footings and sub structure, - obviously. ....I guess if someone is going to hold up a bank they don't tend to ring up and inform the bank that they are on their way to hold them up.....:wink:....so I guess t...

Hi Leeroy17, I am glad you posted again as I could not reply to you on yesterday's post - apparently because there is a max of 3 comments permitted, - so said the message I was sent. I'll try to PM you again on this post - No joy - button to send still not highlighted. PM me on standard Facebook un...

Have you tried getting in touch with the media. ACA always like a local government failure story. It may be enough "noise" to get a politician interested in helping you. Thanks Chippy, I have tried that - the media here in South Australia seem to 'play the game' too - sadly. They report o...

So who employed the builder and how did they get these updated engineering documents to build from? Have you had someone come out and cost the remediation work for you? Isn't that your goal, to ultimately get the works complying with regulations? As already stated, the Council, in their role of 'Re...

I went to the Ombudsman's office with lots of information - they could see how bad it was and insisted I wait for someone else to come in to look at the situation. I thought I was going to get help.......How naive of me.... After being interviewed by 2 assessment officers who took a copy of the Cou...

Hi all Im in Adelaide. I am replacing a 46 year old shed (36M2) with a 48M2 new shed from Stratco. It will go in the same location as the old shed, but will go on a new slab. I have been stuffed around by council since January going through their hoops, as you would expect. Long story short, I had ...
I recall reading a similar story to yours elsewhere and that person was allowed to rely on their Stratco Engineering re...

Hi, The Council say they have an 'amended Development Authorisation' , yet have never produced it (I doubt very much it exists) and they are refusing to communicate. They terminate phone calls - if they take them in the first place, refuse to meet and fail to reply to written correspondence. I'm jus...

What does your builder say? Presumably they built to these amended plans? Who gave them the plans? There are so many questions. What happened to the architect? Were they overseeing the job? Why wasn't the builder using the original approved plans that the architect was given by the council? The who...
