What are the procedures to subdivide my property?

Chapter 13 deals with property subdivision. There are two different types of subdivisions: minor and major. Minor subdivisions involve five or fewer lots, no new streets, and no new public utilities. They can be approved by the Administrator. All other subdivisions are considered major subdivisions. They must first be reviewed by the Technical Review Committee (TRC) which makes recommendations to the Planning Board. The Gaston County Planning Board makes preliminary plat approval for major subdivisions. A Public Hearing with the Board of Commissioners is required for subdivisions exceeding two hundred fifty (250) lots. Table 13.8-1 summarizes the approval process for all plats. Q_Ch13_Subd
