Any vote or resolution of the residents of a retirement village that purports to oblige the operator of the village concerned--
(a) to abandon or amend plans for development in the village, or
(b) to cease to act as the operator of the village,is not binding on the operator.
Note : Submissions concerning proposed development in the village can be made under the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 at the time that the operator seeks development consent under that Act.
Retirement villages may contain residential premises that are subject to a company title scheme, to a community scheme, precinct scheme or neighbourhood scheme under the Community Land Management Act 2021 , or to a strata scheme under the Strata Schemes Management Act 2015 . Resolutions of directors or members of the companies, and votes of relevant associations (under the Community Land Management Act 2021 ) and owners corporations (under the Strata Schemes Management Act 2015 ) have no relevance to decisions of residents under this Act (and vice versa).
