Subdivision

Subdivision
A subdivision is the is the division or re-division of property into 2 or more lots which includes the changing of property lines for the transfer of ownership of land or buildings. There are 2 types of subdivisions, Minor which is the creation of 1-9 lots and Major which is the creation of 10 or more lots.

Subdivisions are handled administratively. They are reviewed by County and State agencies for compliance with various codes and ordinances. Once the proposed subdivision plat has been approved by all agencies it is signed by the Zoning Administrator and approved. Final plats must be recorded in the Clerk of Courts office within 6 months of approval or they will become void.

For review standards, please refer to the County Subdivision Ordinance at https://library.municode.com/va/isle_of_wight_county/codes/code_of_ordinances?nodeId=APXASU
