Subdivision in the Township of West Lincoln

When you divide a piece of land into two or more parcels and offer one or more for sale, you are subdividing property, and the provisions of the Planning Act come into plan.

If your proposal involves creating only a lot or two, you may seek approval for a “land severance”. The other means of subdividing land is to obtain approval of a plan of subdivision from the Township.

What is a Subdivision?

A Plan of Subdivision is a legal survey which:

  • Shows how the property has been subdivided
  • Includes information and conditions on how to develop a parcel of land
  • Includes details on storm and sanitary sewers, protection of natural features and other site-specific information

A Draft Plan of Subdivision is a proposal to subdivide property. You must complete a Draft Plan of Subdivision Application whenever you:

  • Divide land into three or more parcels or lots
  • Establish a new public street

What is a Condominium?

A Condominium is a form of property ownership in which title to a unit, such as an individual apartment in a high-rise building, is held by an individual together with a share of the rest of the property, which is common to all owners. A Plan of Condominium can be residential, commercial and industrial, or a combination. They are generally made up of two parts:

  • Common element such as hallways, private streets or parking areas (something of shared ownership)
  • Exclusive use areas such as the individual unit

A condominium plan is like a plan of subdivision in that it is a way of dividing property. Similarly, plans of condominium must be approved, or in some cases granted an exemption from approval, by the Township of West Lincoln.
