Council Approval in Principle of a Community Development Scheme - Tasmania


You will require this approval, prior to registration, if you intend to create, amend, consolidate or cancel a community development scheme. This is part of a two-step approval process for community development schemes, specifically:

  • First you must obtain a certificate of approval in principle from the relevant Council; and
  • Then you must lodge your community development scheme with the relevant State Government Agency.

  • A strata scheme;
  • A sealed plan (e.g. subdivisions);
  • Some other form of land division;
  • The establishment of a retirement village; or
  • A marina or water-based development.

Any common property created as part of this scheme is managed by a Body Corporate. Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
