Building work

Arundel and Elgin Garden is a private communal garden where children and dogs play securely, with the parents and owners confident that security is uppermost in everyone’s minds and the gates are always kept closed.

Any resident who wishes to carry out any building work and have access to the flat through the communal garden may do so, on the following terms:

1. they give a deposit of £500 to the Garden Committee which will be returned at the end of the work, provided there is no damage to the Communal Garden. Any damage will be deducted from the deposit.

2. the key is given to them by one of the Residents who takes full responsibility for their Builders’ actions, and explains the terms on which the key is lent.

3. the Builders treat the matter of garden security with the utmost seriousness, that is to say, the garden gate must be kept closed when not being used. If the builders need the gate to be open to bring materials in and out, it must be attended by one of the team to ensure that no-one else enters the garden, and no dogs or children run through the gate. If the gate is found open while Builders are using it, the Garden Committee has the right to withdraw the garden key.

If the Residents or Builders are in any doubt, please contact Calum MacInnes, Chairman of the Garden Committee at or 07725 830099.
