Subdividing your land

If you're subdividing your land, here's a step-by-step process, including information on conditions specified on your Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) approval.

Subdivision process

  • Application for approval of subdivision

    Submit your application form to the WAPC to subdivide or amalgamate your parcel of land.

  • Referral for conditions

    The WAPC may refer your application to us, along with other service providers and relevant local government for recommendations of relevant servicing requirements. We will recommend conditions on reticulation, removal of asset and easements etc.

  • Approval of subdivision with conditions

    The WAPC will then issue you with a consolidated set of conditions, including ours, for your subdivision to proceed.

  • Fulfilling conditions

    You are then responsible for fulfilling all the conditions in the WAPC conditional approval. For information on Western Power conditions, the information below will help you get to the right place:

    Small subdivisions (4 or less freehold and all strata lots)
    New connections
    The removal or relocation of electricity infrastructure

    Large subdivisions (5 or more freehold lots)

    You will need to engage an electrical consultant to design your electricity infrastructure to serve the subdivision development in accordance with Western Power requirements. They will then submit the design drawing to us. More information on the development design application.

  • Western Power clearance of conditions

    When all of our conditions have been met, you can then request clearance from us - see below. After we confirm conditions are met, we'll issue a clearance certificate and stamped plan. This happens within 14 days of submission.

  • WAPC endorsement

    Submit your Western Power clearance to the WAPC, together with those from other service providers and local government.

  • Apply for new titles

    With the endorsement of the WAPC, you can then apply to Landgate for new titles.
