Property With Inadequate Access

Property without adequate access may not be subdivided, although a subdivision that creates a timber block only may be approved by prior arrangement with the Registrar of the Land Title & Survey Authority. The subdivider may acquire and construct a public road to give access.

If the road approaching a subdivision is not a two-lane road with a maintainable and/or all-weather surface, the subdivision application should not be approved. The applicant may choose to upgrade the road to a maintainable all-weather standard (specified by the approving office) at their expense. The subdivision may then be approved, if everything else is in order.
