A number of changes to the Mixed Use Development Act 1993 ( 65 KB) have now been implemented to improve transparency and accountability in the operation of bodies corporate. The proposed amendments are part of a broader reform program intended to bring the Act and other similar legislation in line with contemporary frameworks for planning, development and body corporate practices, similar to those under the Body Corporate and Community Management Act 1997.
The Mixed Use Development Act 1993 governs eight developments across Queensland:
- Bretts Wharf
- Cathedral Place
- Central Brunswick
- Cypress Gardens
- Couran Cove
- Noosa Springs
- Osprey Apartments
- Royal Harbour.
The Mixed Use Development Act was established in 1993 to provide certainty around how to develop and manage large scale developments. However, no more schemes can be developed under this Act as large scale developments are now being governed by the Sustainable Planning Act 2009 and the Body Corporate and Community Management Act 1997.
