Stereotypes aside, whatever brings us together in smaller and smaller household formations ideally suited to strata communities, it is time for us to address the issues that arise from this form of living.
These are issues that go beyond the mere management of owners corporations and common property. These are higher issues that are being debated in a corporate context and are evolving as accepted mainstream standards.
Issues such as governance, compliance, sustainability and reasonableness dominate our thinking about corporate life and increasingly the not for profit sector but are yet to be applied in earnest to our strata communities. These are issues, which we must address and disciplines we must learn if we are to live well in strata communities in the second half-century of the strata age.
