What is a subdivision?

A subdivision is the splitting of a parcel of land described on a certificate of title. A subdivision occurs when a single land title is split into two or more parts, property boundaries are rearranged, or a lease, mortgage or other instrument is registered that has the effect of subdividing the parcel.

Subdivisions must be approved by both the Municipal Council and the subdivision Approving Authority.

Subdivisions must conform to:

  • the Development Plan in effect for the jurisdiction in which the subdivision is located – View Here
  • the provisions of the district-wide or individual municipal zoning by-law 2019-3
  • the Provincial Subdivision Regulations MR. 137/2006
