A subdivision is the process of dividing one parcel of land into two or more smaller parcels. By subdividing land, each parcel created is given a separate land title.
Prior to submitting a Subdivision Application Package, you are encouraged to consult with Planning & Development Services to ensure your proposed development aligns with existing Planning Documents. Subdivision applications must meet the Site Subdivision Regulations as established in the Land Use Bylaw. If the proposed parcel does not meet the regulations, a redistricting application may be necessary.
The Municipal Government Act – Section 653 regulates the subdivision process. Subdivision applications are approved by the Subdivision Approving Authority. For a more detailed description of the process, please see our Subdivision Process page.
Applications can be submitted to Planning & Development Services, located on the 2nd floor of City Hall (10005 102 Street).
