About subdivisions

Subdivision means to divide land or buildings into separate parts each with a separate computer register (certificate of title). Subdivision also means to adjust the boundaries of any title, or even to amalgamate two titles into one larger title.

If you want to subdivide your land, you'll always need a resource consent. It's a very technical type of consent, so this section gives you information about how subdivision consents work, and some things you might need to consider.
