Approval and Registration of a Community Scheme (Subdivision) - New South Wales

Service summary

You may require this approval and registration if you intend to subdivide land. You will require this approval and registration if you intend to create, amend, consolidate or cancel a community scheme development. A community scheme development involves the creation of a subdivision (multiple lots) that all have access to common or shared property.

This is part of a two-step approval process for a community scheme development:

  • First, you must obtain approval in principle from the relevant consent authority.
  • Second, you must lodge your community development scheme with the relevant State Government Agency.

The approval in principle of a community scheme development enables the future registration of the specified property that is to be developed.
