What are the rules if I want to build in/on my balcony?

The short answer is that you cannot build on your balcony without permission of both your strata plan and the Community Association.

This means you cannot build any structure, install the compressor for an air conditioner, build a built-in barbecue, enclose part of your balcony or even install an awning on your balcony, without permission. It would be wise to speak to a member of your strata executive committee to find out what may or may not be allowed before you go to any trouble or expense, in case permission is refused.
