That was the same for us. It cost $5000. We are with Ausnet. It took them around 15 weeks just to send us the quote then a further 8 weeks…

That is very annoying, I also have never paid any remarks to a roof or heard of anyone having issues with how their roof looks. Seems like an absolute joke!…

I hope your meeting with the SS goes well tomorrow, I'd be interested to hear about it. I wonder what the excuse will be for blatantly ****** about fixing the…

That is so frustrating, and how cheeky of them to just blatantly lie about things being fixed!

If the builder is trying to charge you for this, ring the council and ask them directly if traffic management is required. A lot of builders charge for it when…
