When using your balcony please consider those below. A large number of areas at The Park Apartment are subject to strong winds. Unsecured items on upper levels can be carried by wind to the lower levels.
Please adhere to the following guidelines:
balcony drains should not be covered and any blockages or debris must removed immediately, otherwise flooding could occur;
to minimise the risk of damage to surrounding residents or property during periods of high winds, all loose items should be removed from balconies;
during periods of high wind all balcony sliding doors and awning windows should be closed;
balconies are not designed to be waterproof, and items left on the balcony may be subject to damage;
ensure no objects whatsoever are thrown, dislodged or allowed to fall from any window or balcony. In particular, cigarette butts must not be discarded over the balcony or left in ashtrays on your balcony. Please remind any visitors about this;
when cleaning the balcony or watering plants, take care to avoid water flowing over the edge onto those below. Use drip trays to collect overflow from plant pots, and regularly empty them;
excessive plants and shrubs should not be kept on the balconies since the water and soil leave permanent marks on the front facing render;
balconies are to be kept tidy;
no shrubs, shade blinds or any other items are to extend into common property space;
no fittings are to be attached to balustrades;
laundry, towels, clothing etc. are not permitted on balconies;
feeding birds by leaving seeds are not permitted since the birds soil adjacent balconies and buildings. Seeds can also create a vermin problem for other residents;
screens (privacy, windbreak, etc.) are not permitted on balconies. Balustrades cannot be filled in - the original design must remain;
alterations to balconies are not permitted without written approval of the Owners Corporation. Any disturbance to the membranes could cause leakage to apartments below. All work to balconies must be clearly detailed and provided to the Owners Corporation for approval.
