Subdivision Plans

What is a subdivision plan?

A subdivision plan is produced after a survey of your property or land. The survey determines the existing boundaries, and to understand the new proposed boundaries for the subdivision. A subdivision plan outlines both existing boundaries and marks new boundaries. When you want to subdivide, a compliant subdivision survey and plan is required before any other processes.

Subdividing your current property into two or more lots requires a certified subdivision survey and application to council and local authorities for approval. All of our licensed surveyors can provide you with exactly what you need to begin your subdivision project. Subdivisions can be carried out on any type of property including vacant land, buildings and multi-level developments.

The subdivision process will generally involve four main steps:

  1. Preparation of a plan by a licensed land surveyor
  2. Application for a planning permit and certification to local council
  3. Referral to service authorities for consent and compliance
  4. Registration with the Land Titles office
