Subdivision of Land
Minor Subdivision of Land Review Requirements
Effective September 9, 1996, the Town of Tonawanda adopted a “subdivision of land” review law, Chapter 185 of the Town Code.

Minor subdivisions include property to be subdivided into two or three lots maximum. The applicant is required to submit a plat plan with required exhibits and application fees (as listed in the application form) to the Technical Support Department for approval. Such approval will take approximately 45 days from the date that a complete application package is received.

Major Subdivision of Land Review Requirements
Major subdivisions include subdividing land into four or more lots. The applicant is required to first submit a Sketch Plan with required exhibits and application fees (as listed in the application form) for preliminary review to the Technical Support Department. Following Sketch Plan approval, a Plat Plan with required exhibits (as listed in the application form) must be submitted for final approval. Such approval could take as long as 90 days, depending upon the size of the subdivisions.

Commercial Subdivision of Land Review Requirements
For commercial subdivisions (office, parks, etc.) Site Plan review will also be required by the Building Department for each building lot / site improvement.
