Subdivision occurs when land is divided into two or more parcels to obtain a different land title or land use. The different Land Use Districts are outlined in the Town of Devon Land Use Bylaw. In addition, the Land Use District Maps provide a visual representation of where these Districts are located within the Town’s corporate limits.
If you are planning to subdivide land, here is what you need to know:
You must fill out the Subdivision Application and submit it to the Town of Devon.
The Subdivision Authority will notify the applicant whether the application has been deemed complete, within 3 working days of the receipt of the subdivision application, if in the opinion of the Subdivision Authority all the necessary documents have been submitted.
The application is then circulated for review and comments.
Referral agencies will have 21 calendar days to provide a response regarding the application.
A decision will be made within 45 calendar days from the acceptance of the application, unless otherwise specified under the Municipal Government Act.
Note: within the corporate limits of the Town of Devon, Council is the Subdivision Authority.
$700 per subdivision application, plus $50 per lot or condominium unit to a maximum fee of $3,000
