What is the subdivision process?
Subdivision is the process of dividing land into smaller parcels. A proposal might be as simple as subdividing one lot into two lots, but more often proposes a large number of new lots and roads in a developing neighbourhood. All subdivisions must follow the Town's Municipal Servicing standards.
|Please call 1-780-486-1991 to book a meeting with MPS and Town staff (if needed) in advance of filing your application.
|Applicant completes application
Please call MPS if you need any assistance with the application form.
An important reminder, that all owners must sign the subdivision application before submission. If an agent (surveyor) is acting on behalf of the owner, they would be considered the applicant.
|MPS will send a letter to the applicant to notify them that the file has been opened and is in review. If any documents should be missing from the file, the applicant would be contacted.
|Review of Application & Referrals
|within 20 days
|During this time, MPS will prepare notifications and send notifications to adjacent landowners and applicable agencies. Within 20 days, you will be notified via letter stating that the file is "deemed complete".
|Subdivision Authority decision
|within 60 days of a complete application
|Once all comments have been returned, MPS will render their decision. According to the Municipal Government Act, the Subdivision Authority has 60 days to make a decision unless an agreement between the parties for an extension has been reached. Typically, a decision is able to be rendered within this timeframe.
If your file receives a "conditional approval", you may then complete the applicable conditions on file.
If your file receives a "denial", you will be informed of the next course of action.
|Applicant completes the conditions of approval
|decision is valid for 1 year
|The applicant and/or owner has 1 year to complete the conditions of approval. Typically, applicants do not tend to take the full year to complete their file although, it would be their choice. This timeline also depends on the number of conditions imposed on the file (engineering/ surveying/ reports) etc.
|applicable if the file receives conditional approval
|Development Agreement (servicing agreement) drafted by the Director of Planning & Legislative Services. This is typically time that any and all security deposits/additional fees are paid by the developer.
|Subdivision Approval documents - endorsement
|anytime after the applicant completes the conditions
|Once all conditions are met, MPS grants the endorsement (registration) to the applicant for registration within 1 year at the Land Titles Office in Edmonton.
*Application timelines vary based on the complexity of the application. The table above shows average calendar days for a standard application.
