Another off topic (running) blog – I’ll get to the running bit, in a bit.
Just what am I paying for?
It seems that when you build a house/units etc on your block of land that the council wants to ensure that their 2 meter pavement and nature strip (grass) at the front is protected and returned to it’s former glory – or state of disrepair n my case. I believe that’s fair, don’t you?
Before building works commence, I have to fill out an “Asset Protection Permit” form and pay a fee of $242.75. That’s fair? NOT
If the pavement or nature strip are damaged, I have to (or the builder in this case) repair it at my/their expense. So what am I paying for?
A piece of paper – $242.75?????
Running? – couple of slight twinges in the last few days, so I’ll wait till the weekend to be doubly sure and then back into a easy program.
