Dodgy neighbours and cameras

By PBO - 18 November 2009 44

I have a neighbour (Old Mate) who has lived in my street for as long as it has been a street.  Recently a new neighbour (Big Burly Builder) has moved into the place next door, did a knock down/rebuild and built an unapproved McMansion right up to the foot path blocking everyone in the streets view, this was the first issue.

The second issue is that the new neighbour installed cameras facing into Old Mates back yard and house.  When confronted about this he said that it was for his own safety and security and he then had a AVO placed against Old Mate which now restricts him going into his own backyard (WTF?).

It is going to court, but what can be done about the cameras?

What’s Your opinion?

take a spoonful of cement, harden up and knock on his door and ask what is really going on.

hit the camera surrepticiously in the morning…

Yeah, because he’d never work out to look at the camera footage to see who sprayed the camera. Duh.

FFS grow some balls. buy a can of matt black spray paint from bunnings and hit the camera surrepticiously in the morning…

Tell Old mate to get a shitload of black shade cloth and erect it across his backyard so Burly Builder can’t see into his yard.

Or get Old Mate to walk around naked in his yard – a lot……the cameras will soon be turned away.

Is this the guy that rang 2CC last week?

Yes. I wish i could say more but that is all i know. I am primarily concerned about the cameras as i believe that they are infringing on his civil liberties.

Make a large mix of dog faeces and petrol, set it alight, and fling it onto the roof of the big burly builders house using a large, homemade catapult. Laugh maniacally, and scream “THERE’S MORE WHERE THAT CAME FROM, BEEEEEAAATCH! BWA HA HA HA HA HA…”

…so, tell us the other side of this story.

If it’s unapproved structure, ACTPLA? If he’s got cameras up, it’s probably being used as a drugs house, so the next call to Crimestoppers?

There is another side to this story.

Give him something to be afraid of. I suggest A Clockwork Orange for inspiration.

Complain about the building. Get an AVO on the new guy. Call the police and say you feel threatened.

Oh, and complain on the RiotACT.

so many questions not answered.

how do you know the new house isn’t approved?
an avo isn’t something that gets given out easily…?’
this can’t be new, did people not notice the size of the place as it was being built and do something about it?
