Living together >> Rules

All shareholders in the Close agree, as part of their purchase of a property, to abide by a set of Rules laid out when the Close was first developed to protect and enhance the environment for al residents and to promote good relationships between neighbours. These rules also form part of any tenancy agreement made when a house is leased. Shareholders are required to ensure that their families, visitors and any tenants are aware of and respect the Rules:


Every resident shall use their best endeavours to preserve the appearance and amenities of Mulberry Close and proper consideration shall be given at all time to all residents.


At all times the fences and boundary walls on the side(s) of each property shall be maintained and kept in good order.


No wall, fence or hedge shall be placed in front of any property. Boundary hedges between houses are allowed.


No-one shall permit anything that is a nuisance or inconvenience to any other resident in the Close. This includes excessive noise and any other anti-social behaviour.


All front gardens shall be adequately maintained. A front garden can only be used for parking after adequate resurfacing and access in agreement with the Directors.


Substantial exterior decoration of any house shall be carried out only after consultation with the Directors. All such decoration shall conform to the specification laid down by the Directors. In addition,
