A Subdivision in Town Planning terms, is the splitting up of a large block of land into 2 or more smaller allotments. Larger subdivisions typically require the construction of civil works, including, Roadworks, Drainage, Sewerage & Water Reticulation.
The Subdivision Process
Where a planning permit is necessary, a planning permit application, together with fees and supporting information must be subitted to Council.
Supporting information that may include:
- an analysis of the site and adjoining properties
- an assessment of the subdivision's impact on the neighbourhood
- a plan of subdivision showing the lot layout and dimensions
- other information to allow us to assess the application
Permit applications are referred to the Servicing Authorities for assessment of their requirements.
Councils will issue a permit if the application complies with its criteria.
Permits are issued with conditions that must be met before a Plan of Subdivision is approved.
If and when approved, a plan of subdivision must be certified by Council before it can be lodged with Land Victoria.
Before the subdivision can be finalised, a licensed surveyor must perform a comprehensive survey to determine the title location, mark the boundaries of all the lots and prepare necessary supporting documents.
A Statement of Compliance can be issued once all the conditions of the planning permit have been met and the Service Authorities have given consent.
