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?

It is good to hear another side as i have not had a chance to hear it yet. I would like to see the old days of a peaceful neighbourhood return and no neighbours fighting. My concern was the cameras facing into the other backyard because i still think that it is a source of irritation, however i will sit back and let the courts handle it.

Ahhhh, there it is, the other side of the story. There is ALWAYS a 2nd side to the story. Somewhere in the middle is the truth. Although, this version does sound a little more credible.

about time we heard the other side of the story.

Agreed. And not surprising, really.
