Subdivision is the process that creates additional lots, provides for the realignment of a title boundary between sites, consolidation of lots, the creation of and removing of a reserve or restriction (such as a restrictive covenant) from the title.

The Ararat Planning Scheme determines if a planning permit is required for a subdivision proposal.  The Planning and Environment, Subdivision and Transfer of Land Acts provide the legislative basis for the assessment of subdivision applications.

You are advised to contact our Town Planners to determine if a subdivision permit is required and any particular requirements such as a minimum lot sizes and dimensions of a proposed lot.

This page provides some useful information sheets explaining the subdivision process.
