Carpark Lighting – The RM noted that the 30 LED lights in the carpark have been installed. The RM is happy with the
scope of works as the lights in question look brighter. As per previous meetings the RM expressed that replacing of
the florescent globes with LED lights would be more beneficial as they are longer lasting and will provide a saving in
the electricity consumption.

with the works that have been conducted. Further noting that the old cameras are to be kept in the basement for
security purposes in the carpark.

- Request to Install a Wooden Deck (Lot 45)
The Owner of Lot 45 has requested to install a wooden deck to the external lower patio of their property.

timber without the pre-approval of the Committee. It is further advised that, as a result of this request being
