With DA costs like these, how can the Council make a loss?

Detailed plans for the four stages of the project from 2014Detailed plans for the four stages of a project

Forum –

We are currently trying to build on the Coast and after a five-week wait, have been asked to pay $1,750 to review our DA application and $563 for a 307 certificate in which we are asked to pay for maintenance costs for relining Council sewer infrastructure plus $166 for a flood certificate and I am sure we are not finished yet.

So, if we multiply this by every new home on the Central Coast and rates for every property, you would have to ask how can the Council be in the position it is currently in?

Despite the Dick Persson Show – how can we expect councillors to pick up on discrepancies professional auditors did not?

I think the whole thing stinks.
