There are two methods to divide land in the Province of Ontario, either through the Consent (severance) process or by Plan of Subdivision. Applications for both are handled by the United Counties of Leeds and Grenville Land Division Committee. The Township reviews each application and provides comments to the Committee but does not accept or approve the applications. All applications for the creation of new lots and other severances (i.e. lot additions) must conform to the Township’s Official Plan and Zoning By-Law. It is highly encouraged for those considering a Land Division application to consult with one of the Township’s Planners prior to applying since issues may be identified which may be difficult to overcome once an application has been submitted.
