The Canberra Times brings the blessed news that planning approval for simple issues on your own land is to be done away with.

Code compliance is to be covered by the building inspection which has a nice bonus that if people take the piss with their extension/renovation they’ll be penalsied by having to tear it down while the rest of the community can get on with life.

Well done Simon Corbell. Only took four years but well done none the less.
