Support residents from the building who wish to have a companion pet!
Dear friends of the building,
I believe that many of our current residents would like to have a companion pet and this wish is void due to our current by law. Therefore, I am seeking support from the current residents from 10 Broughton Street - Canterbury, to have the clause amended into a more friendly version.
Please see details below:
current by law
"clause 16, Subject to section 49 (4), an owner or occupier of a residential lot must not keep any animal on the lot or the common property."
to be replaced by Strata Schemes Management Regulation, 2016 (NSW) – Schedule 3 https://www.legislation.nsw.gov.au/#/view/regulation/2016/501/sch3
"Clause 5 - Keeping of animals
(1) An owner or occupier of a lot may keep an animal on the lot or the common property with the written approval of the owners corporation.
(2) The owners corporation must not unreasonably withhold its approval of the keeping of an animal on a lot or the common property and must give an owner or occupier written reasons for any refusal to grant approval.
(3) If an owner or occupier of a lot keeps an animal on the lot, the owner or occupier must:
(a) keep the animal within the lot, and
(b) supervise the animal when it is on the common property, and
(c) take any action that is necessary to clean all areas of the lot or the common property that are soiled by the animal.
(4) An owner or occupier of a lot who keeps an assistance animal on the lot must, if required to do so by the owners corporation, provide evidence to the owners corporation demonstrating that the animal is an assistance animal as referred to in section 9 of the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 of the Commonwealth."
Thank you for your support.
