Evaluation of a Subdivision Application
When evaluating a subdivision application, the Subdivision Authority considers the comments from the referral agencies and answers the following questions:
Is the subdivision application submitted properly?
Are there any outstanding taxes on the property?
Is the land suitable for the proposed use?
Does the application comply with the Act and Regulations?
Does the application conform to the Statutory Plans and Land Use Bylaw?
Is the subdivision consistent with Provincial Land Use Policies?
Recommendation & Decision
The Subdivision Authority has 60 days to evaluate the subdivision and render a decision. It must decide whether to refuse, approve, or approve with conditions.
Notice of Decision
Written notice of the Subdivision Authority’s decision will be sent to the applicant and published in a local paper within 60 days of receiving the completed application. If the applicant does not receive notice within this time, the application should be deemed as refused, unless a time extension has been approved.
