“Subdivision” can generally be described as the legal mechanism to create new parcels of land. The Ontario Planning Act provides the opportunity for municipalities to approve plans of subdivision. In most cases plans of subdivision will also require Official Plan and Zoning By-law Amendments as part of the approval process.
To begin the process of subdividing six or more parcels of land, or creating a road to service new parcels, applicants are encouraged to contact Development Services staff to arrange an informal discussion. This is your opportunity to discuss the proposal, generally:
Subsequent to this initial discussion a submission may be made for Initial Proposal Review (IPR). This IPR (or "Consultation" stage) is required to establish baseline requirements and lay out the parameters for making a "complete" subdivision application.
The resources below - taken directly from the "File Manager Subdivision Approval Process" documents - are provided to assist you in moving through the various stages of the Subdivision Application process toward approval of a subdivision in the City of London.
