    One of the reasons these tiles were chosen rather than sticking with the old ones was the fact that the small tiles would not adhere to the wall properly. Children were keen to kick balls at these areas as well as there being a problem with damp and we had replaced the tiles in these areas more than once. We felt that what was needed were larger tiles that would more substatial surface area for the tiles to adhere. An added bonus is the fact that children this year seem to be less keen to kick balls at the pictures. We always new that this idea was going

    Given that legal aspect about this topic will be discuss in the next AGM, I would like to give my view as an owner, taking into consideration I am not good at property laws.
    Nevertheless,I am of the idea that any change in the communal services of the development should be approved by owners ahead of any work.
    I strongly believe that the original look of the building should prevail. I bought this property because its modern and minimalist Carlos Gilardi´s design appealed to me. I consider that adding (let´s say "spanish traditional") ornaments to it, is breaking its appearance down.
    Keeping the original design unchanged will revert in the value of our properties positively.
    I know that this point of view is shared by many other owners so I invite them to upload their comments to this useful chat.
    Cheers.

    I agree 100% with JC. These new tiles don't match the visual standards of the development and should be removed asap. I also bought the flat because of the clean design of the building

    Just to highlight Article #4 of the community rules:

    "It is not possible to carry out any work that affect the common elements of the building or the aesthetics, external or internal of the building, without previous presentation of the project made by specialists, which will be presented to the General Meeting of the Community, declaring themselves in favour or against as soon as possible".

    Has this been followed here? I don't think so!. This tiles must be removed asap!

    In our opinion the new tiles do nothing other than enhance the appearance of the excellent pools and think it would be foolhardy to have these removed. We will certainly be voting for their retention if this is an item at the upcoming AGM.

    With regards to the removal of the tiles.... Is there any provision in the Community Rules for infringements?.

    May I respond to the above comment. It is never easy to please everybody all the time. There are many more pressing things wrong in this urbanisation, which has taken us 5 or 6 years to correct, and in many cases we have achieved our objective. With regard to the current decorative tiles, these may not be to everyones personal taste, but we have had no problems with them staying on the walls, which is why we choose them, thereby reducing costs. While Article 4 has been quoted, there is also a LAW (Not a Community Rule) we would remind you - THE COMMUNITY IS OBLIGED TO CARRY OUT NECESSARY WORK FOR THE PROPER UPKEEP AND MAINTENANCE OF THE BUILDING AND ITS SERVICES. This is what we have tried to do.

    Hi Linda, with respect to your comments, I respectfully consider it does not fit to this case. Fortunately I think the building is proper upkept and maintained. Here we have a matter of esthetic clearly.
    Regarding the tiles, I was told by Andy, they were necessary because children played football overthere and the pool side was being damaged.
    I do not think its replacement by plain blue tiles will represent a significant cost (will check on my side. Furthermore when we can afford granting Malcom fees. (something that I was in favour and voted in accordance).
    Anyway, as I mentioned on a previous mail I am in favour of the original design of the building. Hence I will not support the idea of placing more of these tiles in the upcoming AGM.
