What is a subdivision?
Subdivision is a process that allows registered land owners to divide a single parcel of land into separate legal titles and/or consolidate two or more parcels into one legal title. Subdivisions are subject to the Municipal Government Act, City of Wetaskiwin's Municipal Development Plan, Land Use Bylaw 1804-13, and other legislation and regulations.
Is public consultation required for all subdivisions?
The Planning and Development department will review each proposed subdivision and determine if public consultation is required. If public consultation is required, the Planning and Development Department will notify adjacent properties. A public meeting or open house may be held if deemed necessary.
What are the timelines for a subdivision?
The timeline to review a subdivision application varies depending on the complexity of the application. Circulation and review typically takes 2-3 weeks, but may take up to 45 days. Per the Municipal Government Act, a decision must be made within 60 days of the application being deemed complete but that timeline may be extended by agreement between the applicant and the City.
