Numerous factors need to be considered when determining is a lot is able to be subdivided. First and foremost, it must be demonstrated that subdividing will create lots that will be in conformance of their respective land use density and zoning development standards (minimum lot size & minimum lot width) and capable of development in accordance to the zoning regulations (setbacks, lot coverage, etc).
Other agencies such as water and sewer providers should be contacted to determine if such services are available to a subdivided lot to develop. Other agencies like Environmental Health Department, Department of Public Works, and the Fire Department will also need to be contacted to discuss the feasibility of a subdivision.
