Welcome to Birch Land Development Consultants, where our expertise helps turn your land development proposal into a success. With locations across the upper  North Island, we specialise in leading  land owners and  developers through the comprehensive process of land subdivision, transforming possibilities into tangible success.

What is a subdivision?

A subdivision is defined under S218 of the Resource Management Act. In general terms, it is the splitting up of a parcel of land. This may occur by way of:

  • The issue of a separate title for part of that land.
  • By a lease for more than 35 years for part of a parcel of land.
  • By a Company lease or Crosslease for part of that land, or
  • By a Unit plan over part of that land.

Most people understand a subdivision as the creation of a new parcel of land with its own certificate of title, but it does not include any of the four methods above.

A number of subdivisions do not result in the creation of additional titles but are simply adjustments or relocations of existing titles. However, all subdivisions require the consent of the local council, no matter how minor, and this is achieved by submitting an application for subdivision consent to the Council.

We have published a pamphlet called "Subdivision - understanding the process". This explains in more detail how Birch manages the subdivision process for you to ensure that the best possible consent is obtained, and assists with explaining some of the terms commonly used in the subdivision process.
