What is a subdivision?
A subdivision is the division of a parcel of land described on a Certificate of Title. A subdivision occurs when a single land title is split into two or more parts, property boundaries are rearranged, or a lease, mortgage or other instrument is registered that has the effect of subdividing the parcel.
Whatever the size of the subdivision or its purpose is, it will be up to the planning authority to decide whether or not it is desirable and conforms to local land use by-laws and plans.
How do I subdivide my land?
The Morden Community Planning Services office will receive applications for subdivision. Contact information for the office and a map of their location can be found on the Manitoba Local Government web site.
What is the application process and how long will it take?
The length of time an application will take will vary depending on a number of factors including:
Who approves a subdivision application?
A subdivision approval is twofold. The subdivision must be approved by resolution of the Council for the Rural Municipality and by the Minister of Manitoba Local Government as the Approving Authority.
A Subdivision Drainage Plan is also required and must be approved by Manitoba Conservation and Water Stewardship. Click here for the drainage plan guidelines.
