Indicators for Strata Subdivision and Design. A tool for minimising disputes within OC's

In Victoria, near 30% of disputes within Owners Corporations (OC) applied to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal have resulted from issues in the subdivision and architectural plans. However, there has been little knowledge about how to create better plans to prevent disputes in strata schemes.


To respond to it, the Centre for Spatial Data Infrastructures and Land Administration (CSDLIA) at the University of Melbourne has developed indicators for strata subdivision and design that are less prone to disputes within OCs, as a tool for proactive dispute minimisation. The indicators are based on 101 dispute cases applied to the tribunal from 2010 to 2020, especially regarding the use and management of strata schemes.


CSDILA invites you to a survey to gather OC managers' opinions about:

  • the principles of strata subdivision and design to minimise disputes

  • the effectiveness of the proposed indicators on principle application.

The participation of OC managers in this project is essential. This project expects the participation of at least 25 OC managers. The improved indicators based on your opinions will contribute to the enhanced quality of subdivision and architectural plans to avoid disputes. It can facilitate the decrease of the financial burden of OCs during dispute resolution processes and the establishment of a harmonious living environment in strata schemes.The survey closes 11:59 PM Friday AEST, 28th April 2021.
