Subdivisions of land within the RM of Indian Head are provided for under the provisions of the Zoning Bylaw.
While specific consultation is always necessary to discuss your subdivision plans, the following general terms apply within the RM of Indian Head:
The current zoning in most of the RM is agricultural. 1 ¼ section of land may be divided into 2 parcels (1 subdivision). The minimum size of a subdivision is to be 2 acres, and the maximum is to be 20 acres. There must be a remnant, after subdivision, of 140 acres for agricultural purposes.
There is a form, Application to Subdivide which is the formal process for the subdivision to be presented to the Province for their approval. A survey will be required and many people put the entire “application to subdivide” into the hands of a registered land surveyor.
The Application to Subdivide will be reviewed by the Province and input will be obtained from interested persons, including the Rural Municipality. The province will not approve a subdivision application that contravenes our Zoning Bylaw.
The process to obtain subdivision approval can take several months, so patience will be necessary when beginning this process. If changes to the Municipalities Zoning Bylaws are required, the time frame will be longer.
