The Public-'Board of W-orks wishes to bring to the attention
of the general public the fact that Building Applications are being
refused at the present time because of a lack of suitable means
of access to the lot, and'the absence of -services adjacent to",the
lot.. Prwvirs notices-.have advised, prospective purchasers of land
to check with the. Public. Works Department before finalising a
purchase to ascertain the conditions of approval of the Sub-
division; and -confirm whether or not a permit is likely to be issued
for:the lot in question.
It should be understood by applicants whose..permits are
refused under these conditions that Subdivisions ,were approved
on condition that roads and services were put -in to .the satisfao-
tion of the Board, and that the blame lies with the developer
who has not carried out this condition although in all probability
he is selling the lots toe prchasers -at ari'ehanced value including
the cost of these roads and .services.
