What is the process of subdividing land?
Any division of land including revision or removal of property lines must be done in accordance with the subdivision requirements stated in the town’s Development Regulations. The Development Regulations establishes the minimum lot sizes and other setback and height requirements for the district in which the property is located. Before submitting a subdivision plan, the property owner and/or developer must hire a Maryland registered engineer or land surveyor. The consultant surveys the property and prepares the proposed subdivision plans and other required plans or reports in accordance with the Town Development Regulations and policies. Information, applications, checklists and brochures are available online and from the Planning Department at 705 E. Churchville Road.
