Subdividing, strata, addressing, and street changes
Subdivision generally refers to the division of land into two or more parcels.
However, it can also include:
- Consolidation of two or more parcels into a single site.
- Adjustment of an existing property line.
- Dedication of land for road or lane purposes.
- Volumetric subdivisions to create air space parcels.
Strata or condominium ownership
Strata title property is a form of ownership in which a property owner owns their individual unit, plus a share of the common areas of the site, or common property.
Residential, commercial, industrial, and other types of buildings may be subdivided by way of a strata plan.
