Community schemes support greater autonomy and efficiency in scheme management by enabling the most appropriate governance and decision-making to take place at an individual scheme and community scheme level.

The management of community schemes is legislated through the Community Titles Act 2018 (the Act). The Act sets out the creation and functions of the community corporations and the governing councils of community titles schemes. It also provides for the meeting and voting arrangements of community corporations.

Each community titles scheme in a community scheme will have its own community corporation which manages the scheme by-laws, common property and finances of the community titles scheme.
