What is a Subdivision?

A subdivision is a process of dividing a parcel of land into two or more parcels. This gives each parcel its own legal title. If a development application proposes to include a subdivision, a tentative plan of subdivision must be provided to the Development Authority.

When is Subdivision Approval Needed?

  • When creating lots for a new development
  • When creating separate land titles for each unit of a duplex or row house.
  • When creating separate land titles for each dwelling on a single property.
  • When joining properties, or pieces of properties together under one land title.
