A development application is required to subdivide a residential property into one or more lots. There may be a number of development considerations which impact a proposal for subdivision:

• Visit DeltaMap to find the Official Community Plan (OCP) designation, zoning, approximate size of your property, and any development considerations (development permit areas, steep slope, heritage protection, etc.). NOTE: Download the Parcel Information Report.
• Review the Official Community Plan and Zoning Bylaw to determine appropriate designations and zones for your proposal. The OCP designation sets out the maximum allowable density for your lot and in some cases, the allowable building heights and types. Each zone has a minimum lot size for subdivision including minimum lot width, lot depth and lot area.
• Review the title of the property for covenants, rights-of-way, etc.
