- As a general rule, any structure installed at grade level or above and visible from the exterior is subject to review and approval by the Association.
- The application fee for a generator installation is $50.
- Retroactive applications attract a premium.
- Fees are quoted without VAT which must be added at the prevailing rate.
- You may be required to sign an Indemnity Agreement before construction starts.
- Applications must include the following:
- Completed construction application form
- 2 sets of drawings
- Fee (including VAT) if applicable
- Allow up to 6 weeks for processing although we work to respond as quickly as possible.
- If your application is denied, you will not receive a refund. However, you may appeal our decision by stating your case in writing to the General Manager for the attention of the Board of Directors.
If the correct procedures are followed in accordance with the architectural guidelines and there are no exceptions, the process should take no more than six weeks. Our normal processing time is much shorter than six weeks however it can take longer if the documents are incomplete or the design requires Board approval. Below is a checklist of criteria that must be satisfied internally before construction may commence:
- Ownership confirmed by way of a copy of conveyance on file
- Account is current
- Construction application is paid for
- All documents meet the criteria as set out in the architectural guidelines
Ensure that the drawings include the following:
- Fuel tank
- Screening of the equipment with vegetation (or trellis) such that it is not normally visible from the roadside
- Tank type (Diesel vs Gas)
- Piping design
- Containment – wall or other
- Catchment detail(s)
- Day (fuel) tank
- Electrical connection to house
Effective January 1, 2017 amendments to the construction guidelines have been adopted to minimize the likelihood of disruption during construction activity.
The amendments affect two clauses and are highlighted below:
2.1.3 Construction activity is permitted only between 7:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. on Mondays through Friday save for excavation work which is permitted until 3:00pm. No construction is allowed on Saturdays, Sundays or Public Holidays. Any construction activity considered a nuisance can be stopped by Security and workers may be asked to leave.
2.1.5 The contractor is responsible for avoiding damage and making full repairs to any Common Areas, developed or undeveloped properties, streets, sidewalks, utilities, lighting, signage and/or landscaping in the vicinity of the construction site. Before heavy equipment is permitted on the property the owner shall agree to indemnify the Association, by way of written agreement, against loss or damage caused by such equipment. Heavy equipment will be denied access if no specific indemnity is in place from the owner in a written form held at the security gate.
