The Subdivision Process

  • A feasibility study is usually done first to determine if the proposed development would be supported by the relevant local authority (council).
  • This is usually done using the services of a town planner and perhaps meeting with council to discuss ways of achieving their acceptable outcomes.
  • If the development is feasible, then a contour detail plan is prepared and is used to determine a new lot layout and the location of new services.
  • A proposal plan is then drawn up showing the proposed new layout and submitted to council for approval in the form of a development application.
  • Operational works are next including earthworks and laying of new services. New boundaries are marked and a formal plan prepared and submitted to the Department of Natural Resources, Mines & Energy for examination.
  • The approved plan is then submitted to the relevant council once all the conditions of the DA have been met. The plan is then sealed.
  • If the local council are satisfied that the conditions have been complied with, they will sign the back of the survey plan.
  • The applicant must then submit the survey plan and all relevant legal documents to the Titles Office for registration within six months of the survey plan being sealed by council.
  • Once the survey plan is registered, new titles are created and the units/lots can be settled.
