Section 50 of the Planning Act grants the Town the authority to pass a by-law to exempt lands within a Plan of Subdivision from the Part Lot Control provisions of the Act. Part Lot Control Exemption is an alternative form of land division to Plans of Subdivision and Consents and is used to lift Part Lot Control restrictions from lands within a registered Plan of Subdivision in order to create parcels for sale, conveyance, lease and mortgage. Typical examples of the use of Part Lot Control Exemption would include the division of semi-detached and street townhouse units.
In order for the boundary between the units to be determined more accurately, Part Lot Control Exemption is usually applied for after construction has commenced and the building foundations have been surveyed. Once a Part Lot Control Exemption By-law is enacted by Council, the by-law remains in place for two (2) years, after which the by-law will expire and the Part Lot Control provisions of the Planning Act come back into force and effect.
