Subdivision Agreement Process

If your property is distributed accordingly, you can apply for subdivision authorization. A complete list of requirements can be contained in the user manual for approval of subdivision applications. Incomplete applications are not accepted. While the planner can provide you with early answers from the wards, the STAR process targets the planner to give you an answer within 9 weeks of submitting the application. The meeting allows staff to explain the local community planning process and you have the opportunity to publicly submit your proposal. It also gives the local community the opportunity to vote on the proposal. This contribution will be taken into account by city staff when reviewing revisions to your proposal.

The STAR procedure aims to send the first internal notices to the planning department within 8 weeks of the first application.

Once the maintenance contract and other conditions of the LLP have been processed, you can apply to the city`s licensing officer for subdivision authorization. You should state: The technical verification of your application will continue during this process. Your application is distributed to a number of municipal departments and/or agencies, bodies and commissions for detailed technical review and advice. A full request allows staff to review your proposal more fully and reduce total working time. Section 51 of the Planning Act gives the City the authority to regulate the distribution of land through subdivision plans. This authority is used for the orderly operation and development of large lands in accordance with the corresponding municipal rules and standards. Issues discussed in the subdivision plans review include whether the land is suitable for the proposed subdivision, the adequacy of utilities, municipal services and school zones, and the preservation of natural resources. This first discussion with staff to verify your development intentions is your opportunity to get more information before filing a formal application. To optimize your time, present a sketch plan and prepare specific questions in advance.

Be prepared and know your proposed subdivision. The more information you can collect before submitting an application, the more the process will likely be run efficiently.
