WHAT WE DO
Large Urban Subdivisions
Cato Bolam has been involved in urban subdivision for over 40 years. Successfully completed projects range in size and complexity from relatively simple one into two lot developments to 1,000 lot+ master-planned communities.
We aim to provide a second-to-none service in subdivision design, assessments, approvals and completion. As a multi-disciplinary consultancy, we provide a “start to end solution”, from initial consultation, to consenting and construction, right through to the issuing of titles.
Land subdivision is complex. Ever-increasing Council regulations, combined with widened opportunities to carry out various forms of subdivision, makes it difficult to visualise what is possible, or the best way to achieve a desired result at minimum time and cost for a maximum return. We focus on making the complex simple and ensuring the development process is as smooth and efficient as possible.

Cross-lease subdivision is now quite rare - more common is conversion of old cross-leases to freehold or unit titles.
What’s involved in subdividing land?
In simple terms the stages of subdivision are feasibility (what are the yields and likely costs), design, consenting, construction, surveying and titling. For a large urban subdivision some of these stages can be quite complex which is whay the initial planning stage is a critical one. Our process involves assisting our client to identify all of the likely challenges, very early in the process so that there are no surprises down the track.
