Requirements for a community scheme

All plans registered under the Community Land Development Act 1989 are deposited plans and must be prepared in the same manner as any other deposited plan. See Registrar General's Directions for Deposited plans.

Community plan

A community plan is a subdivision of a lot or lots in a conventional deposited plan. A community plan may not subdivide:

  • A qualified or limited title
  • A lot in a precinct or neighbourhood plan or
  • A perpetual lease from the crown.

Precinct plan

A precinct plan may only subdivide a lot or lots in a community plan.

Neighbourhood plan

A neighbourhood plan may subdivide:

  • A lot or lots in a community plan
  • A lot or lots in a precinct plan
  • A lot or lots in a conventional deposited plan provided the title is not qualified, limited or a perpetual lease form the crown.

All of the above plans must be surveys prepared by a registered land surveyor.
