Condo Smarts: Council suddenly enforces bylaws

Dear Tony: We live in a 78-unit townhouse complex that was built in the late 1980s. Each unit has a carport. Without permission, several owners over time have enclosed their carports to function more like a garage, or have installed a wall at one end to accommodate shelving and storage units.  We submitted a letter to council in August requesting permission to add a wall at the back end of our carport, so we would have a place to hang our bikes, kayaks and equipment.  The council has responded that it is no longer permitting alterations to the carports, even though the last unapproved alteration was only six months ago. Does council get to randomly enforce bylaws against some people and not others?      Read the article………….
