Hi Epiphany,

I am glad that you've started the ball rolling with the AVO application - and can't believe that the neighbours are still at it, despite having had the application served twice! I hope all goes well for you at court on the 18th, and that these pests don't give you too much grief in the meantime. Continue to document everything between now and court, including the latest complaints - I think it can only go in your favour at court. And give a copy of the Order to the Council for their records, once you are granted it (I'm being optimistic that you'll get it!). Then they can't say that they don't know the situation. Couldn't hurt, anyway.

Anyhow - I really hope that this year is MUCH, MUCH better for you than the last two years of hell. And I wish for the unneighbourly neighbours double the stress, anxiety, and hassle that they have put you through - it's only fair! :swords: :lol:

Thinking of you and offering BYP cyber-support, :grouphug:

I was just wondering how your day in court went Epiphany, and hoping that you're now living a much more peaceful existance thanks to an AVO?

When you click on Epiphany PROFILE button, I can see they have not logged into BYP since June 2012, so byhook don't think we will find out, but you never know,

Chookuns: I actually asked them earlier this year why the public weren't made aware of the change in the law or were consulted about it. They claim the proposed changes were on display in the Council offices during Nov last year but they got little public feedback (what a surprise!). Apparently this is considered adequate public consultation.


“But the plans were on display…”
“On display? I eventually had to go down to the cellar to find them.”
“That’s the display department.”
“With a flashlight.”
“Ah, well, the lights had probably gone.”
“So had the stairs.”
“But look, you found the notice, didn’t you?”
“Yes,” said Arthur, “yes I did. It was on display in the bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying ‘Beware of the Leopard.”

Monash have done a similar thing. Not long ago the limit for poultry was 15, now it is 5. Applications for extra birds is $65 annually. They've obviously all decided this is a good money spinner, what with the renewed interest in backyard poultry.
Now I'm just waiting to be hit with $300-$800 for not mowing my naturestrip often enough :(
Power really goes to their heads doesn't it?


It's typical of australia. Most other countries you can keep as many as you want, and build whatever you want. If it is your own land you don't need permits or permission from anyone for anything. Whenever I hear people parrot the phrase 'australia is the best country' I always ask them if they have a passport or have been overseas, and I find it is almost never the case. I have my own ongoing fight with the idiots on local council, but not over my many chooks.
