Subdividing Land 

Subdivision refers to the process of adjusting the boundaries of a parcel of land to:  

  • Change the dimensions of an existing parcel;  
  • Create new/additional parcels of land; or  
  • Reduce the number of parcels of land.  

New subdivisions must be approved by the municipality’s Subdivision Authority before the new property boundaries can be registered with the Alberta Land Titles Office.  

Subdivisions are processed in cooperation with Municipal Planning Services (MPS), who are contracted by the County to initiate all subdivision applications. A general subdivision guide has been prepared by MPS for persons interested in subdividing land.

Multi-lot subdivisions require an Area Structure Plan (ASP) as outlined in the County's Municipal Development Plan (MDP).

Subdivisions are processed in cooperation with Municipal Planning Services (MPS). Subdivision Applications are submitted to MPS. Once received, the Planner(s) review the application and bring recommendations to County Council, the Subdivision Approving Authority. All related fees for the subdivision process can be found at MPS Subdivision Fees
