Subdivision is the process in which a parcel of land is divided into two or more parcels, in order to obtain separate legal titles for each parcel. The provincial Community Planning Branch with the Ministry of Government Relations is the approving authority for subdividing land in the RM.
A discretionary development application must be completed with the RM prior to submitting the applications for subdivision to Community Planning in order to begin the process.

Subdivision Application Process
A copy of the subdivision application is referred by Community Planning to the RM for review, comment and endorsement. The applicant includes a plan of proposed subdivision prepared by a Saskatchewan Land Surveyor. The plan of proposed subdivision shows the location, dimensions and boundaries of the parcels to be subdivided and includes sites features such as existing buildings, approaches, adjacent roadways, water bodies, municipal or environmental reserve lands and utility rights-of-way.
The R.M. Planning Department reviews the subdivision application for compliance with the relevant Official Community Planning and Zoning Bylaws and any other planning policies; with a report and recommendation prepared for Council. If the application complies with all requirements, Council can recommend to Community Planning that the subdivision application be approved.
If an applicant receives subdivision approval, they must meet the conditions of approval, which may include such things as entering into servicing agreements, dedicating municipal or environmental reserve, paying subdivision servicing fees or upgrading roadways or other services. Once these conditions of approval have been met, Community Planning approve the subdivision, which will allow the plan to be registered at the Land Titles Office in order to create the new legal titles for the new parcels of land.
