(1) The time taken to process and approve an application for unit titling as at:
(a) 30 June 2001 - an average of 9 weeks;
(b) 30 June 2002 - an average of 7 weeks;
(c) 30 June 2003 - an average of 9.5 weeks;
(d) 21 October 2003 - no applications yet approved.
(2) There has been an increase of 2.5 weeks in time taken to process the unit title applications between June 2002 and June 2003;
(3) The cause of the increase results from processing twice the number of unit title applications compared to the same time in 2002 i.e. July-Sept 2003 - 31 applications received and July-Sept 2003 - 66 applications received;
(4) Recruitment action has been initiated to engage additional staff, however, it will take time for the new staff to have sufficient training to carry out the function efficiently. The industry is also being reminded that processing times can be much quicker if there are no development compliance issues to be dealt with prior to completing unit titling.
