I am in the Brisbane City Council.
So today I was provided a letter asking me to comment on the proposed construction next door (vacant lot). Apparently there are non-compliance boundaries/setback.
The form provided is named "Concurrence Agency Application" and only the "Neighbour's Statement" is provided in the post for me.
1) Does my neighbour need me to sign/comment before sending the form to BCC for approval or can they submit without my comments?
2) If I object to the proposed setback, are there any other forms I can lodge direct to the council? I am worried that if I return the signed form back to the neighbour/their builder, they will simply throw it in the bin and replace it with an empty page and advise council that they cant get hold of me...?

Hey, call a townplanner and they can explain to you in detail, very friendly and reachable. I won't sign anything that will affect your enjoyment of your property and I think it sets the precedent for future neighbours too

Thanks algernon for taking the time explaining it so well. It makes sense why they would use the measurements against the orientation. Our next door neighbor has a 4.4m…
