A NSW State Environmental Planning Policy (exempt and Complying Development Codes)2008 states in subdivision 26 Minor building alteration (internal) that,( in part), a development must not include a change to the configuration of a room.
To do so requires council approval.
An owner in our block has added a wall to change a one bedroom unit to a two bedroom unit without approval. Our manager said that it is not a strata concern.
So why not a strata concern? Surely the change (if approved) should be registered with LPI and their unit entitlement increased to fall in line with a two bedroom unit.
What a slack strata manager you have.
Of course it’s a strata concern. The council is unlikely to approve the change without strata approval – so how can it not be a strata concern? Obviously there is going to be increased use of common propery with the maximum number of people allowed in a unit based on the number of bedrooms.
Make your objections known to the council … and start looking for a strata manager who doesn’t object to doing a bit of work for their money.
