Subdivisions & Non-Subdivisions

What is a Subdivision?

A subdivision is the division of land into two or more parcels that can be disposed of separately. The only new parcels that can be created by a subdivision are lots, road reserves or common property. During the subdivision process a plan may create restrictions, an Owners Corporation and/or easements (including implied easements) to make a particular development functional.

A new plan of subdivision can also remove or vary any restrictions and easements created in an earlier plan of subdivision, under Sec 23 of the Subdivision Act 1988.

What is a Non–Subdivision?

In some cases for developments that do not include the subdivision of land, water and sewerage requirements will be the same as for a subdivision. Non subdivisional developments include multi tenement development and high demand customers.
