Land subdivisions

A subdivision is when a land developer takes one large block of land and divides it up into many smaller blocks. 

A subdivision can also be when multiple blocks are consolidated into one larger block, or a boundary between two blocks is moved.

These blocks or lots, are then usually sold individually or in multiple lots to a property developer.

The developer will then usually build a series of properties and sell them one by one or as home and land packages.
