Overview - SLRS Your Manager

Sanctuary Lakes Resort is a unique community in Victoria, with more than 2,900 lot owners and a population likely to reach 10,000.

The Resort is managed through two separate legal entities.

  • Sanctuary Lakes Resort Services Limited (SLRS) provides services to residents
  • Sanctuary Lakes Club Limited operates the Golf Club.

Each house lot is part of an owners corporation, operating under Victorian owners corporation legislation.  Each owners corporation is a member of Sanctuary Lakes Resort Services Limited.

The Resort is built around a Greg Norman-designed 18-hole golf course and a 60 hectare lake.  Facilities provided to residents by SLRS include back-to-base security and mobile security patrols, a recreation club with gymnasium, swimming pool and tennis courts and a resort maintenance team attending to the presentation of gardens, lake and community areas.  SLRS is also the manager of each owners corporation, providing administrative services and representing the owners corporation at the Victorian Civil & Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) and similar places.

SLRS is a not-for-profit company limited by guarantee.  This means that the company does not have shareholders and share capital but has members as provided by the Constitution.  The members are each owners corporation which appoints a delegate to represent the owners corporation at general meetings.

The company has a Board of Directors appointed by the members of the company.  The company operates under Commonwealth Corporations Law.

At a specially convened Board meeting of Sanctuary Lakes Resort Services Ltd (SLRS Ltd) on Thursday, 6th June 2013, the previous Board of Directors, who represent the development company Sanctuary Lakes Developments Pty Ltd, resigned their positions in favour of the seven elected members of the Executive of Sanctuary Lakes Resort Services Advisory Council which represents all Owners Corporations within Sanctuary Lakes Resort.

This was the final step in the transition process which had been on-going since 2007.
