Dealings with Hornsby Council with respect to DA 94/2020
We lodged our objectors letter with council against DA 94/2010, what an ordeal under the circumstances with the death of Mrs Helm and our impending trip to the UK. After submission, noticed that council had placed our document on their MasterView - Application Enquiry internet site (file accessed on Tuesday 16 Feb 2010) in the public domain - http://hsconline.hornsby.nsw.gov.au/appenquiry/modules/DocumentMaster/ViewDocument1.aspx?key=uHK2wrQdAbM%3d&size=4029816 After a few days it was no longer accessable with a message "You do not have access to this document!" appearing each time access was attempted. Took screen shot of internet acces to council file 24Feb2010 showing file no longer accessable Robyn phoned Hornsby council and spoke to the Assessment Officer at the Planning Division and was assured that it was a mistake and our letter of objection to DA94/2010 should never had been posted in the public domain. However, it appeared that each time we communicated with council, our correspondence was placed in the public domain for a day or two before being withdrawn from public view. I have included a few examples below. One or perhaps two mistakes maybe, but why put each of our letters or emails on public display for a day or two. Especially concerning to us when private information regarding the death in the family and the fact we were out of the country. Any one reading this would assume our house was empty and easy pickings for burglary let alone the disrespect to our privacy regarding family misfortune.
