Subdivision Information

What is Subdivision?

A subdivision is required when a piece of land is divided into two or more titles. Examples of this might include instances where a commercial land owner wishes to split their lot in half to develop another business or when a developer wishes to create a multi-lot subdivision for the construction of several homes.

In order to allow for the subdivision to occur there are several administrative and legal changes that must take place, therefore, a process is in place to ensure that these changes are accurately implemented.

A homeowner might apply for subdivision where:

  • A boundary adjustment is desired and the owners of both affected properties are in agreement;
  • The owner wishes to split two or more separate properties into separate titles where two or more properties are on the same title and the subdivision was registered at Alberta Land Titles prior to 1950;
  • The owner wishes to split a parcel into one or more new parcels and all of the resulting parcels would comply with the requirements of the Land Use Bylaw respecting minimum lot size.

Subdivisions are subject to the requirements of the Municipal Government Act, Subdivision and Development Regulations, Land Use Bylaw, Municipal Development Plan and other legislation and regulations.

Consolidation might be requested where an owner has two or more adjacent properties and wishes to combine them to accommodate a development or sale of the property.

The fees associated with subdivision applications are as follows:


 Subdivision Application  $200.00 + $100.00
 for each newly created parcel
 Final Endorsement  $100.00
