10. Preparing for the second directions hearing

Where a Strata Schemes Development Proceeding is listed for conciliation or mediation and the parties are unable to reach agreement to resolve the proceeding, the proceeding will need to be prepared for a hearing.  The Practice Note and usual directions at the first directions hearing specify the steps the parties will need to undertake before the second directions hearing.
