The Subdivision Approving Officer reviews all subdivision applications to ensure compliance with the Provincial Land Title Act and the City’s Official Community Plan. Subdivision includes the creation of several properties from one or more existing properties, the realignment of existing property lines and the consolidation of two or more properties into one.
The Local Government Act, Land Title Act and the City of Quesnel’s Subdivision Control Bylaw and Consolidated Zoning Bylaw regulate the subdivision of land.
The Approving Officer ensures that each subdivision adheres to the lot size and road frontage requirements of the Zoning Bylaw and the Subdivision Control Bylaw to ensure appropriate access and road dedications; park/open space; works and services such as roads, water, storm and sanitary sewer, flood protection, etc. The Approving Officer is also charged with protecting, where appropriate, natural features, views and the future development potential of adjacent parcels.
