Today’s Sydney Morning Herald runs this article which, in essence, says that some coastal councils in NSW are now placing bans on additions to existing beach front homes based on a report that outlined where the 2025 sea level would be. Now..I don’t know about you but if I have shelled out millions of dollars for a slice of seashore paradise I don’t want to be told by some fucking hippy ( like Simon Smith ; what a wanker ) that I cannot now build a new deck on my house. Let me worry about the sea-level thanks very much and like all transactions, if and when when I sell my property…..HABEAS CORPUS !
My house in Australia is not exactly beach front but is about 300m from the coast. I would hazard a guess it is about 30m above sea level if that. Luckily I don’t really want to do anything to it but if I did….I probably couldn’t ! Jesus. Its moments and articles like this that make me realise why I like living in SEA. Less restrictions ( well..none here in Cambodia that a fistful of dollars can’t fix ), less local council wankers telling me what I can and can’t do. Struth, when I lived back there I was even told my dog could not bark. Apparently drunken doll bludgers on meth’ can crank the stereo until 3am but god forbid your dog should bark. Anyways…if anyone wants a 1950s timber house right near the beach – it’s for sale ! At a grossly inflated price of course……….
