Question: I have an apartment with a balcony in NSW and can I put artificial hedge roll on my pole for decoration?
Answer: While the decorative item is easily removed, it may offend the “keeping within the appearance of the building” by-law:
While the decorative item is easily removed, it may offend the “keeping within the appearance of the building” by-law which is likely applicable to your scheme.
This common and standard by-law states:
17 Appearance of lot
- The owner or occupier of a lot must not, without the written consent of the owners corporation, maintain within the lot anything visible from outside the lot that, viewed from outside the lot, is not in keeping with the rest of the building.
- This by-law does not apply to the hanging of any washing, towel, bedding, clothing or other article as referred to in by-law 10.
Note: This by-law was previously by-law 29 in Schedule 1 to the Strata Schemes (Freehold Development) Act 1973 and by-law 30 in Schedule 3 to the Strata Schemes (Leasehold Development) Act 1986.
