You will require this certificate from the relevant Council if you intend to register, amend, consolidate or cancel a strata plan. This is part of a two-step approval process for strata plans, specifically:
- first you must obtain a certificate of approval from the relevant Council
- then you must lodge your strata plan with the State Government Agency.
The registration of a strata plan creates a strata scheme for the specified property. A strata scheme is a development which divides a property into lots (private property) and common property. The common property is managed by a Body Corporate, which is all the lot owners acting as a single body. Before issuing this certificate the Council must be satisfied that all relevant planning and building requirements have been met.
Please consult the Contact Officer for further information.
