Subdivision Applications

Subdivision Applications

The R.M. of Mervin’s OCP and Zoning Bylaw regulate if and when land can be subdivided within the R.M. of Mervin. Outlined within the Zoning Bylaw are specific zoning districts that have specific regulations for subdivisions.

Subdivision Process

Step 1:  Contact Professional Planner or Saskatchewan Land Surveyor (SLS)

Step 2:  SLS completes subdivision application and plan of proposed subdivision

Step 3:  Application submission to Community Planning Branch (CPB)

Step 4:  CPB reviews and forwards application to Municipality for conformance

Step 5:  Public notification for two weeks (if applicable). When subdivision applications are received that fall under the discretionary use category, the R.M. of Mervin must notify, at a minimum, all landowners within 75 metres (246 feet) of the land affected by the subdivision.

Step 6:  Subdivision application presented to Council (and Public Hearing if applicable)

Step 7:  Council renders a decision.

  • If the answer is no, the subdivision application is denied and the file is closed.
  • If the answer is yes, please continue with Steps 8 through 11 below.

Step 8:  Municipality requests servicing agreement with developer

Step 9:  Servicing agreements signed – Municipality informs CPB

Step 10:  Information Services Corporation registers title

Step 11: Development permit application process begins

** Subdivision applications that involve multiple lots may affect the timelines and requirements of the process.
