Question: Is a special resolution required for the removal of a large hedge at the front of our five lot strata building?
Our block of 5 units has a very large hedge at the front of the property. The hedge provides privacy from the street for two of the apartments. The hedge also provides the building with its streetscape appeal. Is a special resolution required for the removal of the hedge?
Answer: In our view a special resolution would be required.
In our view, yes, a special resolution would be required because you are “changing” the common property for the purpose of improving or enhancing it (as opposed to exercising the owners corporation’s repair & maintenance duty). Additionally, you should ensure you comply with local council’s requirements regarding removal of the hedge.
