In this submission, Shelter opposes the Part 10 provision that makes it far easier for a scheme to be disolved (only 75% support for a developer's proposal is required, rather than 100% at present). 

Shelter is very concerned that low income strata owners and tenants will be displaced, and low cost housing will be lost. The Government, through Fair Trading, has persistently refused to systematically address the potential impacts of the ‘strata renewal’ changes on lower-income households
