Subdivision is a complex process which requires ongoing consultation between local Council, Surveyors and the Development Assessment Commission. This process can be simplified by instructing a Solicitor or Registered Conveyancer to compile and lodge the application on your behalf.
In South Australia, development approval must be gained before land can be divided into separate allotments. This applies whether it is a boundary change between neighbours, one or more allotments being created or a large scale development creating numerous allotments.
If you want to subdivide or change the boundaries of your land it is highly recommended you consult your Solicitor to discuss your application and the development requirements. Your Solicitor can assess the development plan and advise you of your likelihood of success. Furthermore, your Solicitor can contact the local Council and discuss your application on your behalf.
