As residents we are bound by stipulations signed at purchase or rental. This is part of the contract of living in Poundbury. Courtyards are not backyards!
ALL rubbish bins are to be left within your property boundary out of sight during the week.
Poundbury is designed to enable residents vehicles to be parked off street, and courtyards are an integral part of that design. Some residents LIVE in courtyards, and many overlook them. In doing so they provide visual security where cars and garages may be left unattended. No one wants to look out on bins all week. Please respect these spaces. Stipulation No.16 requires ALL bins to be taken into the property (or appropriate binstore) apart from bin day. A little leeway is permissible for shift-workers etc in terms of retrieving bins back into the property. However residents who leave bins out all week are disrespectful to other residents. Bins must not live in the courtyard during the week.
Marked parking spaces are in all cases for approved vehicles only and are NOT for other items such as bins. Please make a space in your garage or garden or use a binstore. The courtyard owners reserve the right to take action against persistent offenders.
Leaving bins on footways during the week is a safety hazard, and you may be personally liable for damage to cars and people.
