What is a subdivision?
A subdivision is the division of a parcel of land described on a Certificate of Title. A subdivision occurs when a single land title is split into two or more parts, property boundaries are rearranged, or a lease, mortgage or other instrument is registered that has the effect of subdividing the parcel.
Whatever the size of the subdivision or its purpose is, it will be up to the planning authority to decide whether or not it is desirable and conforms to local land use by-laws and plans.

How do I subdivide my land?
The Brandon Regional Planning Office will receive applications for subdivision:

     PO Box 22147
     2022 Currie Boulevard
     Brandon MB R7A 6Y9
     Phone: 204-726-6267
What is the application process and how long will it take?
The length of time an application will take will vary depending on a number of factors including:
•whether the applicant has provided sufficient information for all government departments to provide comments on the proposal;  
•whether any conditional use orders, variation orders or zoning by-law amendments are required;
•how quickly a subdivision applicant meets all of the conditions of approval for their subdivision to enable the Approving Authority to issue a Certificate of Approval.

Who approves a subdivision application?
A subdivision approval is twofold. The subdivision must be approved by resolution of the Council for the Rural Municipality and by the Minister of Manitoba Local Government as the Approving Authority.
How much will it cost to subdivide my land?
Please contact the Manitoba Community Planning Office for current subdivision fees.
