When only a portion of a landowner’s property is involved, the owner may wish to separate that portion away from the whole. That act is known as Subdivision. That act alone is once again most closely related to the Boundary Survey. The extents of the property must be determined to ensure that the only property involved is clearly titled to the owner. Then, a portion of the land is described by bearings and distances. Local ordinances must be consulted to ensure that the actions meet all specific requirements. New corner markers are set which clearly display the newly created lot or lots. The plan is then presented to the governing local body for their approval. Once that is done, the plan can be recorded and the new lot is officially created.
Getting the plan approved is a process that the Surveyor does that involves much more than just the division of the land. There are many additional permits and regulations that need to be obtained or satisfied. If a subdivision is to have anything that generates sewage, an approval is required by DEP. If there is earth disturbance, an approval is required to minimize erosion during the construction of a Project. If there is a new driveway proposed, a local permit may be required. If the new driveway proposed on a state road, a state driveway permit will be required. If there are zoning ordinances, compliance must be demonstrated. Each site is unique and Meck-Tech will provide guidance throughout the design and permitting process to the satisfaction of both the owner and governing bodies.
