I am an owner of a strata townhouse in a scheme of less than ten homes in South Australia. Late last year, I submitted a resolution to ask for permission to install an automated sliding aluminium slat gate in place of my currently existing double swing colorbond gate. Presently, all townhouses have the same double swing colorbond gates.
The installation cost and ongoing maintenance will solely be my responsibility, and the dimensions of the new gate matches the current gate’s dimensions. All the details of the proposed new gate (photo & dimensions) were included in the meeting minutes which were sent to all owners 1 month before the meeting.
We had our annual meeting 2 days ago, where only 2 of us owners were in attendance, and several other owners had appointed the only other owner present at this meeting as their proxy. No conclusion was arrived at this meeting as to whether people were for or against my resolution. My questions are:
1) How do I move forward from here
2) Can 1 strata owner be proxy for several other owners (in this case he was proxy for about 5 other owners)? Is there legislation around this?
The only answer I received was that he was “uncomfortable” with my idea of a sliding gate because its appearance is different to the existing style of gate.
I’ve only been an owner occupier for 6 months, and any advice would be much appreciated!!
