• Can cooking be termed an illegal activity ?

Hi,

In our residential complex of 40 units, we plan to cook food in an open space which already has a concrete slab (constructed by builder) ~ 7ft x 10ft to celebrate some social events. One of the residents have an objection to this. This prevented us from buiding any permanent structure for the kitchen as it is not in the initial plan. So we are planning to cook at the same place using temporary structure like bamboo and tarpaulin as a shed that can be easily dismantled post the activity. Now we are receiving threats from the objecting person that cooking at that place is also illegal !! 

Can you please shed some light as to why cooking can be termed as an illegal activity ?

Regards,
Dipesh

Open space belongs to all the inhabitants. It cannot be used by any member for carrying on any activity such as cooking,etc without permission of society.

Prior permission from the Association is essential for cooking in common areas, as it belongs to each and every resident.
