A subdivision is the process of dividing a parcel of land into two or more parcels so each will have its own legal title. Redistricting typically happens before a subdivision.
Subdivisions are processed in cooperation with Municipal Planning Services (MPS), who are contracted by the County to initiate all subdivision applications. Simple subdivisions that meet the requirements ofPolicy 61.1.3 may be approved by administration; however, all other subdivision application are approved by Council.
A general subdivision guide has been prepared by MPS for persons interested in subdividing land.
