The subdivision approval process

After any required planning permit for development has been granted and the subdivision application has been submitted, an advertising and referral process may occur, as follows:

Referral to other authorities

Most subdivision applications will be referred to service authorities, such as:

  • South East Water
  • Melbourne Water
  • SPI Ausnet or United Energy
  • Telstra
  • Multinet Gas
  • VicRoads

The council also refers all subdivision proposals to relevant council departments.

Advertising of the application

Advertising to nearby property owners may be required for subdivision applications, in accordance with the Planning and Environment Act 1987.

Final step

Once these steps are complete, the final step is for the applicant to lodge a Plan of Subdivision with the Land Titles Office for the creation of the separate titles.
