At this time a suitable solution to managing the composting of food scraps for the whole apartment complex has not been achieved. If not managed properly food scraps can become a health issue, as well as a major task for the cleaners. Ask your neighbours what they do individually, and post a question on the Facebook group page. See also the City of Sydney Community Composting online guides.
Yes, you can, but for a minimum term of three (3) months. Shorter term stays are not permitted in the Rochford and our community feels strongly about policing this rule. See the by-laws, in particular by-law 37: Development Consent D/2014/1609.
All owners and occupiers in a strata scheme, including tenants, are legally obliged to comply with the by-laws of the scheme.
If a notice to comply has been issued by the Strata Manager and the conduct continues, the NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal may issue a penalty of up to $1,100. If the Tribunal has already fined the owner or occupier within the last 12 months for a breach of the same by-law, the penalty imposed can double to a maximum of $2,200.
Any owner who is in breach of the occupancy limits set out in the legislation is potentially liable to fines of $5,500 and $11,000.

Can I grow fruit and vegetables at Rochford
Rochford has two rooftop gardens which include fruit trees and herb and vegetable plots. They are managed by a keen group of resident gardeners. If you would like to join in, just look for relevant posts on the Rochford Facebook page.
Of course if you would like to pick say a lemon, some chillies or some herbs, you are very welcome to do so, even if you are not an active gardener. Enjoy.
