CERA Flip-flops Again……

  • Locked out of undamaged factory for 1214 days – (since Feb 2011)
  • Do we still own our building????    Now 687 days since designated “South frame, Innovation Precinct” – only until 2022 before it lapses. ( Before we get told if we are going to be compulsorily acquired by the CCDU.)  Jeepers how did that happen? I thought it was 3 years.  Silly me.  This is not giving certainty to the building owners.  This is a really bad plan.
  • High Street Building amendment details still at the council. Another Request for Further Information regarding a “fire safety issues”.  Back to the Engineer. Humm this is starting to be really annoying……. some of the “questions” are getting annoying as well….
  • Building Consent for my new house. Amazing!  It came through yesterday.  It took only 8 months….

Now this is guaranteed to frustrate a building owner. Its called the flip-flop, or is that flop-flip. Now I am sure there is some clever individual out there who can tell me the answer to this question, but you now have here one totally confused building owner.

On the 3rd of June 2014 I am sent a document with a “spatial plan” of the new lane way to be created behind our building.  Okay…… so now I can make a decision about the layout of our rear block that needs rebuilding….  “Very spatial it is too…..”

But no, no, no….. 10 days later I am sent a new version that is to go out for public consultation……

Its changed back…. Again???????  Now this might seem to be no big deal.  But it actually is rather important that I get the layout of the building more or less accurately reflecting the lane way. There is no point in having the toilet block in an area that should be an entrance.

Now what i do?  grirr………  Why are we waiting?   Just tell me what the ….decision is so that we can make a decision.

Make up your mind please!

Make up your mind please!


Ho Humm, another day in paradise.
