I: Before You Subdivide

It is essential that the landowner contact a Planner at ORRSC to discuss their proposal prior to submitting an application. The Planner will discuss site suitability and conformity with local and provincial planning regulations. They can also assist you in determining whether additional processes and professional services will be required and what additional costs you may incur. If you wish to meet with a planner, a scheduled appointment is recommended.

The cost can vary greatly depending on the complexity of your subdivision. Some of the basic costs of subdivision are listed below.
