So I just read the thread about the guy with fake grass on his nature strip and this led to me wondering about ours.
I think we need to get a retaining wall installed between the road and the foot path. The verge is really steep and we have stairs to reach the path (about 20 half height stairs).
With soil movement the slope is gradually getting steeper.
Would council be obliged to put in a retaining wall since there is soil movemen?. Could we request it and if approved would it be totally our cost? What if they dont approve it and the soil movement causes a slide?
If it was done as a straight retainer instead of staggered (my preference) the footpath would need to be fenced since it is at least 1.5 metres above road level.
