A Subdivision is a process where a property is legally split into two or more properties. The scale of a subdivision application may vary from a single urban lot to a new neighbourhood development. Subdivision approval is also required where a property line between two properties is being shifted.

*New Subdivision Submission Requirement*

Effective immediately, in accordance with the Government of Manitoba’s Subdivision Regulation 137/2006 as amended, the City of Brandon Planning & Buildings Department requires subdivision applicants to submit a Surveyor’s Sketch instead of a site plan. Drawn by a Manitoba Land Surveyor, a Surveyor’s Sketch will accurately show the proposed subdivision of a property, as well as features that may affect the proposed subdivision.  A site plan may still be required if the subdivision application is submitted in conjunction with another land use application, such as a rezoning application.

Minor Subdivisions
