An owner has installed a cage around their parking spot. They claim it is to protect their car from people walking past. They have used the building pillars as supports which has technically enlarged the spot (by about a metre).
This is an open parking area which enables access to the front door. There are a number of routes to the door, all requiring a walk past other owners cars. This is the most direct route and is wider than normal to provide an egress.
I am concerned the cage is a fire hazzard blocking a quick exit. The OC don’t want to have a fire consultation because it will lead to inevitable costs to bring the building up to code. The EGM voted the suggested by-law be rejected. Only 5 of 33 owners voted.
The owner being on the committee has ignored the request to remove the cage as a result of the vote. As walkers are now pushed to walk further along the row, other owners could follow suit.
This domino effect would create a dangerous eyesore. I am also concerned that this precedent could also mean that cages could soon be replaced with bricks. What are the rules around car cages? Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
