Generally

The administration sheets will consist of at least three pages. A maximum of five annexure sheets, using strata plan form 3.08, may be added. If further annexure sheets are required approval must be sought from the plan and title advisor.

The administration sheets are numbered separately from the plan drawing sheets. 

Plan drawing sheets

The drawing sheets must be prepared at A3 size on Plan Form 1. They must include a location plan and a floor plan. The floor plan must be prepared on a separate sheet to the location plan.

Location plan

The purpose of the location plan is to show the relationship between the building(s), lots external to the building(s) and the parcel boundaries.

Floor plan

The purpose of the floor plan is to define the vertical and horizontal boundaries of the lots in the strata plan. These boundaries are defined as structural boundaries, line boundaries or stratum statements.
