  • Important information

    Built Strata Subdivision Applications (Form 15A and Form 15C) made under Section 15 of the Strata Titles Act 1985 (as amended) and the Strata Titles (General) Regulations 2019 

    Built strata subdivision applications are determined by the City under delegation from the Western Australian Planning Commission. This delegation does not extend to applications proposing a vacant lot, vacant air strata in multi-tiered strata schemes or leasehold schemes where applications are to be made directly to the WAPC for determination. There are also types of built strata subdivisions that do not require approval as prescribed by the Strata Titles (General) Regulations 2019. These are where:

    • The area of land is no more than 2,500m²; and;
    • The lots are to be used for residential purposes and each lot contains only one dwelling; and
    • There are no more than five lots in the strata; and
    • The land is within a residential zone and conforms with the local planning scheme.

    Built strata subdivision can take place where buildings are fully constructed, or where buildings are proposed to be constructed. An application for approval of a built strata subdivision is made to the City using a Form 15A (formerly a Form 24).  The Form 15A certifies that the proposed strata plan is in accordance with the approved development plans.  The City will review the application and issue a decision, which may or may not include conditions of approval.  Following receipt of an approval, the applicant must address how any conditions imposed on the Form 15A have been complied with before applying for a certificate of endorsement (Form 15C, formerly Forms 1C and 26).  The Form 15C must be accompanied by a copy of the strata plan.
