Vegans fight with neighbours to get them to stop cooking meat



Cilla Carden is a massage therapist from Girrawheen (north of Perth) who is a vegan and claimed that her neighbor Toan Vu intentionally let the smell of their barbecue into her property.

Toan Vu lives with his family (wife and children) next door to Carden since late 2018.

Carden claims that she is unable to go to her own yard because of the fish smell from her neighbor's home.

She also made a fuss about Mr. and Mrs. Vu's cigarette smoke, as well as their children's basketball plays. Carden claims that the children slams their ball into their shared fence all day.

The Daily Mail Australia saw the documents of the claims, and the files also stated that Carden demanded her neighbors to manage the weeds in their own garden, take care of the repainting of their shared fences, and repay the cost of damaged plants on common property.

A tribunal heard Carden's accusations in January 2019, and the tribunal dismissed all of her claims.

Carden then took her case to the Supreme Court so she can get an appeal, but but the court threw her case in July. However, that did not stop the angry vegan neighbor. She swore never to give up.

She informed 9 News that it was frustrating to smell the barbecue's devastating odor.

Carden said: 'They've put it there so I smell fish, all I can smell is fish. I can't enjoy my backyard, I can't go out there.'  She further said: 'It's deliberate, that's what I told the courts, it's deliberate,' And: 'It's been devastating, it's been turmoil, it's been unrest I haven't been able to sleep.' 

The Tribunal heard that the neighbors finally made a compromise regarding the issue of barbecue and basketball.

Mr. Vu had taken his barbecue tool from his yard and prohibited his children from playing near the shared fence.

The court document states: 'The applicant has reached agreement with Mr Vu that positioning his barbecue on Unit B over away from [Ms Carmen's] Unit C, closer to unit 18A, is acceptable to the applicant,'

The noise issue was not taken into consideration since no other neighbors complained about it, and the Vu family were not making huge noises.

The tribunal ruled: 'What they are doing is living in their backyard and their home as a family,'

Cilla Carden also filed an official complain against Carmel Vallelonga, another neighbor and landlord whose house is located on the other side of the Vu's home.
She demanded to have the floodlights to stop emanating light on her unit from Vallelonga's property.

Carden also insisted that her neighbor process repairs on the fence and have the fence repainted. She further wants Vallelonga to paint the entry steps, repay the price of the plants, and control the dogs of her tenants while on common property.

And once again, Craden's claims were dropped by the tribunal.

In a statement made by Vallelonga, she said: 'Ms Carden's demands were proven to be not reasonable and indeed were to the detriment of the other owners' ability to enjoy their lots in a reasonable and acceptable manner.'

The vegan claimed the smells of barbecued fish and meat were being deliberately wafted into her house and took the matter to the Supreme Court - only for the matter to be thrown out (stock)
