What are common architectural standards and what do they mean for me?

Jacksons Landing is a planned community and each building has been designed by an architect to work in harmony with all the other buildings. To ensure this philosophy is adhered to by each strata in implementing any later changes to their buildings, a group of common architectural standards have been drawn up to control such things as alterations to buildings, washing on balconies, window furnishings visible from outside the building etc. These standards are administered by the Community Association as the overarching body for the whole estate. While all changes to the appearance of buildings require Community Association approval, in practice the Community Association normally accepts recommendations from each strata executive committee. It is wise to check the standards before you take action to alter your residence in a way that can be seen from outside.
