Renter in WA, City of Perth, Apartment with parking in basement
Corollary: City Council Guidelines adheres to Australian Standard for parking space dimensions in parking lots at 90 degrees, as 2.4 m x 5.5m.
Issue 1: The gate to the basement parking rolls into my allotted parking space.
Issue 2: The gate reduces the effective usable parking width to 2.1m making less the standard width of a parking space. (Not Insignificant)
Issue 3: The gate slides into the parking space in order to permit other residents to enter and exit the facility. Should a resident unknowingly activate the gate to open as I am accessing my vehicle. I have a potential of being crushed and damage done to myself and my property.
I believe this is significant enough to warrant at least reassigning my parking space, indefinitely. or until the issue with the gate is rectified.
Strata company has mentioned the following:
they have advised that in 22 years this has never been raised as an issue and major structural works will not be undertaken at the request of one tenant. They further advised that the building has not been altered in 22 years and therefore the gate and parking bay was how it was originally built and approved.
[Property Manager] have also sought advise from City of Perth planning and development and they have advised that the car bay would be considered the correct size unless the gate was a permanent fixture within the car bay.
Note: the railing on which the gate is required to operate on in permanent affixed to the ground in the parking spot.
