A subdivision consent allows you to subdivide around an existing dwelling

Examples include:

  • A new vacant lot to the rear, or with a new dwelling or dwellings for greater returns.
  • Create titles around a new development for sale.
  • Subdivide a vacant site or relocate a boundary.
  • Relocating or removing an existing house

Subdivision consents are usually granted with conditions relating to other approvals. These other approvals include building consents, engineering plan approvals, and certifications under sections 223 and 224 of the RMA (Resources Management Act).

You’ll need to obtain all necessary resource consents before you can subdivide your property, including any land use consents. Our team can explain this and more to you, get in touch to find out more.
