Subdivision Applications

Step One

If you are submitting a planning application for a new subdivision, your first step is to set up a pre-consultation meeting with planning staff.

Step Two

After your pre-consultation meeting with planning staff, you will need to complete any required reports, plans or studies that are required to form a complete application. 

When you have prepared the required information, you can complete the Subdivision Application.

Step Three
