About Subdivisions

This page has information for anyone interested in subdividing a property in the Tasman District.  Subdivision means to divide land or buildings into separate parts each with a separate certificate of title.  Subdivision also means to adjust the boundaries of any title, or even to amalgamate two titles into one larger title.

To undertake a subdivision, you'll need a resource consent. It's quite a specialised type of consent, so this section contains information about things you might need to consider.
