This is incredible - there was a case in the early '90's of a front yard 
food forest in suburban Brisbane, the owner arrived home one day to find 
council had been in with a bulldozer and completely cleared it away - the 
neighbours had complained to Council that 'you can't see the house from 
the street & it may be harbouring vermin'!
