Subdivision is the process to create new, titled parcels of land. A rezoning or development variance permit may be required prior to a subdivision application, if the current zone does not have enough lot area or frontage to allow for additional lot(s). This can be confirmed with a review of the current zoning regulations in the Land Use Bylaw.
The following are types of subdivisions where approval of the Approving Officer is required:
- Adjusting lot boundaries between two or more parcels;
- Creating several new lots from one or more parcels;
- Creating lots in a bare land strata development;
- Creating a phased strata plan development;
- Strata conversion
