What is a subdivision?
Subdivision is the process of altering legal property boundaries. It usually involves the dividing of a property into smaller parcels of land. It can also include the realignment of existing property lines or the consolidation of one or more properties into a single parcel.
Prior to the application
It is important to be aware of what the applicant will be responsible for before submitting a formal application. In a subdivision process, it is the applicant's responsibility to:
- Make all applicable applications
- Review the property title to determine if there are charges which restrict subdivision
- Check to confirm that the proposed lots conform to the minimum lot size and width regulations in the Zoning Bylaw
- Know of any special site conditions that may exist on the property
- Provide detailed information, such as geotechnical data, design and servicing details
(all new lots must be serviced)
Applicants who are not experienced developers are encouraged to seek the advice of qualified professionals prior to making any financial commitments or submitting a formal application. Prospective applicants should schedule a pre-application meeting to discuss their application prior to detailed plans being prepared.
