Part-lot Control Exemption
The Planning Act permits municipalities to pass by-laws to exempt any or all lots or blocks within registered plans of subdivision from part-lot control, so further subdivision of individual lots or blocks can take place. The City of Windsor may pass a by-law exempting land situated in a registered plan of subdivision from part-lot control to allow the registration of a reference plan to divide the land into a number of parcels or to change existing lot lines.
Exemption from part-lot control is commonly used to facilitate semi-detached and town-house developments. This approach is used because of the difficulty the builder would have in ensuring that the common centre wall between two dwelling units was constructed exactly on the property line.
Applicants are advised to consult a Planner in the Planning & Building Services Department prior to the submission of applications. Application forms and information about application fees are available at the counter. They can also be downloaded from the Applications/Fees webpage. For more information, please see the Part Lot Control brochure.
