Interpretation and Application

All subdivision by-laws currently in effect in the Greater Miramichi Region are found below. In general, each subdivision by-law outlines the:

  • Requirements of a Tentative Plan of Subdivision;
  • Required conformance with the Community Planning Act;
  • Classes of subdivisions;
  • Provisions for lots, blocks, and other parcels;
  • Provisions for streets, land for public purposes, and municipal infrastructure;
  • Minimum area and dimensions of new lots, as further specified by the Zoning Regulations.

We strongly encourage clients to contact us and ask to speak with a Development Officer trained in this area of expertise for the interpretation and application of subdivision by-laws.


By-laws are amended on a regular basis.
