Councils using ‘Intelligence’ to track down low EPC properties and fine £5,00015:08 PM, 29th March 2021

Like many leaseholders up and down the land, the development I live in has a few parking issues (albeit manageable ones). These are caused by leaseholders owning more than X vehicles (contrary to the terms of the lease), and is a bit more of an issue currently due to the increase in people working from home.
As such, the Directors of the Management Company have decided they would like to remove approx. 40% of the communal gardens to facilitate an additional 6 car parking spaces.
To date, there has been no communication to any leaseholders of this intention. Indeed, I only found out verbally from a Director on my way out of the property.
Obviously, being leasehold, the Management Company does not even own the communal land (they are retained parts, as defined in the lease).
This potential “garden grab” is further complicated by the fact the development is in a conversation area.
I would hope the Directors have absolutely no right to do this, but would welcome opinion.
