  • Children – children under you control are not permitted to play in common areas, or areas dangerous to children (such as rubbish bins).

  • Parking

  • Only use parking bays assigned to you.

  • Visitors may park in your bay too.

  • In some cases, there will be bays available for visitors.

  • You and your guests must never park in another resident’s bay.
