Subdivision

What is a Subdivision?

Subdivision can generally be described as the legal mechanism that leads to the creation of new parcels of land. Subdivision involves the division of land into two or more parcels, and can also include the re-alignment of existing property lines, the creation of strata lots, the creation of long-term leases (over three years), building stratas and air-space parcels.

Information for Developers

All subdivision of land in the District of Stewart is governed by the Subdivision and Zoning Bylaws.  These Bylaws set out subdivision requirements such as minimum lot dimensions, specifications for construction, subdivision procedures, etc.

In addition to fees and servicing costs payable to the District, applicants are responsible for all surveying costs, Land Title Office fees and fees payable to outside utility companies for serving the new subdivision.

Requirements of "External Agencies"

  • Ministry of Transportation (i.e. when subdivision occurs adjacent to a Provincial Highway, or access to the foreshore is a consideration)
  • Ministry of Water, Land and Air Protection (i.e. concerning environmental issues, flooding, contaminated site remediation)
  • Ministry of Health (for on-site sewage disposal)
