Apply to subdivide properties

Talk to our Subdivision staff

Find out if subdividing your property is possible by contacting our Subdivision staff at

You will need the property address and legal description so that staff can identify the property and provide specific subdivision information.

This information is provided unofficially, since a full staff review is necessary before the Approving Officer can confirm the feasibility of subdividing your property.

Requests for official information must be made in writing by submitting either a preliminary proposal or a formal subdivision application to the Approving Office, both of which require a non-refundable processing fee.
