We had a fast approval for our DA which was submitted on June 10 and obtained approved on July 22. However, it was painful for us to recognize that Marretta designer had made a terrible mistake that we WERE NOT on the maximal floor space use. Actually, there were still around 10sqm allowance on the ground floor. We were really socking and very much depress as we really wanted to start our build as soon as possible at the same time we felt it was really a waste that we wouldn't rebuild our max floor space.
In addition, the "lovely" tree officer from the council requested that we should log on with Section 96 for the tree removal. It obviously show that we had none other choice than lodging with Section 96
