6 .         Strata/survey-strata plan may restrict use of parcel or part of parcel

        (1)         A strata/survey-strata plan lodged for registration under this Act may, by an appropriate endorsement that delineates the area or space affected and refers to this section, restrict the use to which the parcel or part of the parcel may be put.

        (1a)         Subject to subsections (3a) and (4), a registered strata/survey-strata plan may be amended, by resolution without dissent (or unanimous resolution, in the case of a two-lot scheme) of the strata company, to restrict the use to which the parcel or part of the parcel may be put.

        (1b)         A resolution under subsection (1a) shall refer to a plan of the parcel showing the area or space affected.

        (2)         Where a registered strata/survey-strata plan restricts the use to which the parcel or part of the parcel may be put, a proprietor, occupier or other resident of any lot that is part of the parcel shall not use, or permit to be used, the parcel or part of the parcel in any manner that contravenes the restriction.

        Penalty: $2 000 and a daily penalty of $200.

        (3)         Subject to subsections (3a) and (4) a restriction endorsed on a registered strata/survey-strata plan under this section may be varied or removed by resolution without dissent (or unanimous resolution, in the case of a two-lot scheme) of the strata company.

        (3a)         An addition of a restriction under subsection (1a) or a variation or removal under subsection (3) is effective only if the local government approves the resolution and, if the subdivision in the plan was one to which the consent of the Commission was required under this Act, the Commission approves the resolution.

        (4)         A resolution adding a restriction to or varying or removing a restriction endorsed on a registered strata/survey-strata plan under this section shall not be effective until notice of the resolution is registered in the prescribed manner with the Registrar of Titles and upon registration the Registrar of Titles shall amend the strata/survey-strata plan accordingly.
