Well I got a letter from the shire today saying it has come to their attention that I have constructed a bike racing track and have 30 days to apply for a permit. Cost $502 for permit and if passed it can be used at certain times.

Here's the extent of my construction.
Three kids on 110cc atv's going around a flat track that has worn all the grass off, that's about it. The track is on my property rite next to my house. 270 acres. The closest neighbour is 300 metres away. This neighbour put in a complaint not from the noise but because the damage to the grass. When I read the letter I rang the shire, was told their was a complaint and new strait away who it was. I went and seen him face to face, when shown the letter he said his dealings with the shire are none of my business but he did admit it after I said "you haven't even got the fcuking ball to admit it" then he tells me what we're doing to the grass is offensive. I said look over ya shoulder nackers, there's thousands and thousands of acres being turned upside down.

Ffs I'm over jumpin through hoops and bending over just to have a bit of fun.
Somewhere along the line it always comes back to money.
I'm fcuking mad as a cut snake at the moment. Better go have a couple bundys.

Had a neighbour behind me who gave me some pipe to put in our table drain on the driveway. He then complained to the Council about the illegal pipe work. I had to remove it and dump it at the tip and show the Council the receipt to prove that I had done the right thing. Roundup ice blocks on his lawn at night gave me some recourse.:p

Get a lawyer and don't talk to anyone. Yep, it'll cost you but you can't fight City Hall by yourself.

Uuum its your grass or your property??

Simply reply to the council there is no such track, never has been and if there ever was to be you would apply for the permit.

Ask for whom adjudicated on the complaint and discuss the matter with them - councils are not above the law and one complaint doesnt make a case.

Get some spray for the Cut Worms. They can do some serious damage to your grass.

Nothing of what you have done constitutes construction, it was kids having fun.
I'd fight that.

Otherwise I'd better start getting a permit organised for the 4wd track that I 'built' on the grass by driving from the driveway to the fkn shed.

Cheers mate. Haven't been around the track for about 3 weeks so the grass has mostly grown back. I spoke to a woman from the council who sent the letter, and get this, we can ride anywhere as long as it's not round and round because that makes a track and a track is classed as inferstructer and requires a permit. This makes me more angry.

My next step is to get our 315hp john deere with the 6 metre rotary hoe on the job.
Know body will ever know there was a track there. Will be no grass either, then make new track where it can't be seen or heard.

270 acres sounds like its zoned Rural, they shouldn't be able to pursue that at all. Your not running events or deriving an income from having people ride on your 'track', therefore it's not a track and council should prove otherwise.

Please tell me it's Shepparton City Council. We can rampage through that joint together.

You'll better do that but remember to apply to have this illegally constructed access road reclassified as private access road. The appropriate signage, drainage, speed humps, alco guards etc. all needs to be there before approval can be granted. For a low one off fee $10,599 AUD I can arrange for all the paperwork....;)

Regards.

Na mate. Baw Baw shire in gippsland. My neighbour is on the board their conveniently.
And yeah it is rural. Good points you've made there. Instead of me proving there is no track, they can prove there is a track. I said to the woman at the shire " do I need a permit for the track the cattle have made around the bail feeder" it's all so ridicules I thought that might be a legitimate question.

I was going to ask if you had any stock there that had made tracks to water or feed, but you already answered that

I just put plans into shire for alterations to my house .
The garage is actually a carport on their records but the drafters put it as a garage as it has a garage door when we bought it and trellice and I filled in the sides with timber and blue board instead.
Shire got knickers in a twist "I said I bet if I cross someone's palms with silver and fill in a form the problem will go away " sure enough some ink and 200bux later it okay .

******s

Can't believe these grubs, complaining about the grass. Does that make the lawnmower a criminal?? should have us all come round for a no exhaust day. Why can't people just let kids have some fun??

Just punch him in the face.


A bad days fishing's better than a good day at work.
