The NSW Liberal Government is seeking feedback on the laws that regulate residential land lease communities in NSW to ensure they are fit-for-purpose.

Member for Riverstone, Kevin Conolly MP is encouraging everyone in local land lease communities to have their say.

“It’s important that the legislation we have in place is working the way it should – which is why I’m encouraging the community to engage on the review of the residential land lease laws,” Mr Conolly said.

“The Act provides the framework for the governance of these residential communities and establishes the rights and responsibilities of operators and home owners, so it’s important these are working the way they should be.

About 96% of residential land lease communities are located in regional and rural NSW, with 309 communities located in coastal areas and 200 located inland.

“There are four in our region, at Stanhope Gardens, Rouse Hill, Marsden Park and Vineyard. I encourage each and every one of you to submit your feedback and ideas.”

Minister for Better Regulation, Kevin Anderson said a comprehensive discussion paper on the Residential (Land Lease) Communities Act 2013 had been released to open the five-year review of the laws.

“We’ve prepared a discussion paper canvassing the Act and known pressure points, such as the way electricity charging occurs in land lease communities with an embedded network,” Mr Anderson said.

“We’ve also outlined a number of reform options and would welcome community views on what the best way forward might be.”
