ACT Unit Titles Management Act (2011) be changed to prevent the body corporate of cluster housing, such as apartments (flats) from banning clothes drying on balconies. The model by-law in the NSW Strata Schemes Management Act allows washing, provided it not visible from street level. There is no simialr provison in ACT law and a body corporate is not required to follow the model by-law in NSW. What is wring with washing anyway?
Given that global warming is the greatest issue of our time, having your washing out in the sunlight, rather than in a fossil fuel dryer, should be a positive statement.
Andrew Barr MLA, who passed the request on to the relevant minister, Simon Corbell MLA, the ACT Minister for Environment & Sustainable Development. Minisert Corbell declined to act (coincidently I received the reply while I was attended a talk by the minister). Perhaps other Canberra residents could ask.
