One of my neighbours has erected a bollard in our building’s driveway, without any approval from the committee, or any notice given. Not sure which funds were used for it, but that’s beside the point, as we (the rest of the committee) wouldn’t have approved it anyway. The bollard stops people from reversing up the length of the driveway and into their garages. Mind you, no one is using their garage for parking at the moment, but that’s not the point. SHOULD someone want to reverse their car into their garage, they won’t be able to.
We’re between strata agents at the moment (voting in a new company this week). What should our next steps be? What’s the process of getting the bollard removed? (The other person in our 3 person committee is in agreeance) And is this something the committee needs to pay for?
Any feedback welcome, this neighbour is a nightmare.August 11, 2020 at 6:02 pm #235099Amanda FarmerExpert
This Forum post about a similar issue should assist: https://yourstrataproperty.com.au/qanda/topic/wall-built-to-enclose-carspace/
In short, this is an illegal addition to the common property. Yes you can remove it and yes you can recover the cost of removal from the owner who installed it (assuming you can prove who did it). I suggest first directing them to remove it at their cost, then the OC can step in and do it if they do not comply.
