All residents and their guests are welcome to use both the North and South gardens, including the barbeque, for individual or group social purposes.
For GROUP use of the South Podium Garden and Barbeque
Please make a prior booking with the Building Manager to avoid any double-up. In this way social distancing can be managed as well as barbeque use. No exclusive bookings can be made on days of special events such as Sky-fire.
Please note: The garden area must be kept clean and tidy just as you find it. The Barbeque especially must be cleaned ready for use by the next person/s.
North Podium Garden use is not affected by these arrangements, but observance of social distancing is still required.
Removals and Deliveries
All removals and significant deliveries must be arranged with the Building Manager
at least 2 days in advance for an agreed date and time (between the hours of 8.00am till 3.00pm) using the form located at the office window or website here
. They will be scheduled only Monday to Friday. No Saturday, Sunday or Public Holidays are permitted. If these procedures are not followed the removalist will be denied access to the building.
Bikes and Scooters
No bikes or scooters are to go through the ground foyer. They are to go out through the garage using Level 1 or B1 lift entry points.
The Refuse Room room is located on the ground floor. It is for household general waste only. No TV’s, furnishings, microwaves, kitchen appliances, bedding or packing boxes. Large items should be disposed of at a rubbish transfer station (e.g. Mitchell).
Please note that the Refuse Room has CCTV monitoring.
All residents are asked to strictly folllow these recycling rules;
No polystrene in the recycling bin.
Tip it loose into the recycling bin don’t just dump it in.
All boxes big and small are to be flattened and left on the ground next to the bin.
Soft plastic or plastic shopping bags must not be put into the recycling bin. All bags are to be tipped out.
No household items in the recycling bin. E.g. pots, plates, cutlery, glassware.
Care in entering or leaving the garage
Please drive with caution in the garage, and in particular on entry and exit. Drivers should stop at the stop signs entering or leaving the garage and to then proceed slowly.
Residents are reminded that smoking is prohibited in all areas of common property of the building. This includes corridors and foyers, podium gardens and the garage. It also applies to apartment terraces unless steps are taken to ensure that other residents are not affected by the odour or vapour. Cigarette butts should not be thrown into the podium gardens and particularly not thrown onto terraces of apartments below.
Tidy Terraces and Balconies
All residents are asked to keep terraces and balconies tidy and clear of storage boxes or containers. In particular, clothing racks and washing drying on terraces or balconies is not permitted. In this way the building will be an attractive place to live.
There are one or two drain outlets under the tiles on the external balconies. These can get blocked with leaves and other similar rubbish and should be cleaned out about once a year. The Building Manager has plans of the balconies that can help you identify where the drains are located. You will need a tool to lift the tiles or use a loop of twine slipped under diagonally opposite corners of the tile. Take care as they are fairly heavy.
