Sue* came to Bayside Community Legal Centre to talk about a retaining wall on a neighbour’s boundary. The neighbour was an elderly lady who lived alone, and was very concerned with the changes being made to her property.
Sue was about to start a new house build for her and her family. The issue of the retaining wall was delaying her building start date and she wanted to have her neighbour feel fully aware and informed of what was going to happen.
Bayside CLC arranged for Sue and her name to speak with mediators which they agreed to do. Two of our mediators were able to assist these two ladies to a mutually beneficial outcome, with an agreement reached between the two parties.
*Not her real name.
