Subdivision Applications

What is a Subdivision?

A 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.

Types of Subdivisions that require Approval:

  • Adjusting lot lines between two or more parcels
  • Creating new lots from one or more parcels
  • Creating lots in a bare land strata development
  • Creating a phased strata plan development
  • Air space plan subdivisions
  • Strata conversion

Prior to applying for your Subdivision, it is the applicant's responsibility to:

  • Check to confirm that the proposed lots conform to the minimum lot size and width regulations in the Zoning Bylaw
  • Review the property title to determine if there are charges which restrict subdivision
  • Know of any special site conditions that may exist on the property

(all new lots must be serviced)

Subdivision Process: 

There are steps involved to successfully Subdivide a property. 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.
