A consent is the authorization to create new lots (land severance), right-of-way and easements, add to an existing lot, change lot boundaries, enter into a mortgage or lease in excess of 21 years, validate title and proceed with a power of sale. The process of creating new lots, right-of-way, and easements and adding to an existing lot is commonly known as conveyance.
Where a number of severances are being proposed and to ensure proper and orderly development, it may be more appropriate to submit a Plan of Subdivision. Applicants are advised to consult a planner in Planning & Building Services Department to determine the best approach.
Pursuant to the Planning Act, Council has delegated its authority under Section 50 to the Consent Approval Authority. For more information, please see the Consent brochure.
