Consent to Sever/Severance

A Consent to Sever/Severance is the authorized separation of a piece of land to allow for the creation of a new parcel of land (also known as land severance). This approval begins with the submission of a Development (Land Severance) Application to the County of Perth Land Division Committee.

Within the County Official Plan, there are policies and requirements for land severance. If the severance and creation of multiple lots is intended, an application for a plan of subdivision will normally be required.

Prior to making an application, an applicant is encouraged to pre-consult with the County Planning Department to review the request and submission requirements. Each application must include the application fee.
