Table of Contents Parcel Split by a Road

Parcel Split by a Road

If the subdivision produces a new parcel split in two by a road (with a hook across showing one title on the plan), and creates a severance that is small enough to cause concern with respect to sufficient area for the building envelope and sewage disposal areas, use of that severance may be curtailed with the placement of a restrictive covenant. Bylaws may prohibit split parcels or establish minimum and maximum parcel sizes for a road severance.
