Lot Sale Page

All development within Whitehorse must be carried out in accordance with the terms and conditions of a Development Permit issued pursuant to the Zoning Bylaw.

What is a Subdivision?

The Municipal Act states that a subdivision "includes the adjusting or realigning of an existing property line, a division of a parcel by a plan of subdivision, a plan of survey, a plan made pursuant to section 6 of the Condominium Act, an agreement or any instrument, including a caveat, transferring or creating an estate or interest in part of the parcel, or the creation of a new parcel from existing parcels of land."

Subdivision Approval Process

The City of Whitehorse approves the subdivision and consolidation of land, and the creation of condominiums, on all land within the City’s municipal boundary.

A subdivision is required when a piece of land is divided into two or more real-estate entities able to obtain separate Land Title. Examples of this might include instances where a commercial land owner wishes to split their lot in half to develop another business or when a developer wishes to create a multi-lot subdivision for the construction of several homes.

Before starting the subdivision process please discus your project with City’s Subdivision & Lands Coordinator (SLC). 

Subdivision Process

 

Types of Sudivision 

By Plan of Subdivision:
Creating two or more lots from one existing property

By Plan of Consolidation:
Consolidating two or more properties into one lot

By Plan of Boundary Realignment: 
Adjusting or realigning an existing property line where you end up with the same number of lots that you started with.

By Plan of Condominium:

Bare Land Condominium:
Involves dividing a parcel of land into individually owned ‘bare land units and common elements. Four posts in the ground and everything in-between constitutes a Unit.
