The art of subdividing and building

Subdividing a block of land has many steps involved, which is why it’s best to consult with an experienced development professional who will guide you through the subdivision process.

To help wrap your head around subdividing, we’ve mapped out some points to help you get you started.

The steps to subdividing & building

At Summit, we work with a team of subdivision consultants who can assist you with the subdivision and build process. Here is what your subdivision journey typically looks like.


Step 1 | 4

Settle on your land

Before you can even look into subdivision, settlement on the land needs to take place and for the site to be in your or your project name.

Step 2 | 4

Feasibility & subdivision

We start by listening to our clients to make sure we thoroughly understand their needs and their reasons for developing. It is that understanding that enables us to provide a development plan based on the clients objectives. From here, we assist and provide direction in relation to the titles process in conjunction with the client and their surveyor. We then discuss your desired outcomes for your development and from there, a subdivision plan is formed.

Step 3 | 4

Lodge subdivision with WAPC

From here, your surveyor will prepare and submit your subdivision application to WAPC. Summit will then coordinate and meet the requirements from WAPC for the separate titles.

Step 3 | 4

Connections to your site

The next step is organising your connections such as water, power & NBN. At Summit, this is part of our service when developing. It’s one of the many benefits of going through a builder because if you organise it independently, it not only can cost you thousands but it can also slow down the process.
