Please take note of a most significant point in the article – what the Master Builders said  that 7% of applications ended up in VCAT.  And he is complaining about  that?    What it says to me is that 93% go straight through.    They have nothing to complain about as far as I can see.
In addition  the Master Builders seem to think there is ‘excessive democracy’.    How much democracy is excessive?    What do they want to curtail  to silence us?
