The division of land can occur in two ways: by consent to severance or by Plan of Subdivision. Plans of Subdivision are regulated by Section 51 of the Planning Act.
Subdivision approval ensures the following:
Any new subdivision must have a "registered plan of subdivision". This is a legal document that details the exact surveyed boundaries and dimensions of lots, the placement of streets, and the locations of any schools or parks. The plan need not show specific building locations or dimensions; these issues are addressed under the site plan approval process if necessary.
