Changes to a plan of subdivision

If you want VCAT to make an order about changing a plan of subdivision you can make an application to VCAT under the Subdivision Act 1988 Part 5.

Under the Act you can apply for VCAT to make orders requiring an owners corporation to amend or alter a plan of subdivision. You can also apply for an order stating that VCAT consents to the change of a plan of subdivision on behalf of non-consenting members of an owners corporation.
