Subdivision & Condominium Development and Conversions

The City of Hamilton's residential development can be best tracked by active subdivision and condominium development applications within the urban area. These reports are created twice per year and are available by community or ward.

Stages of subdivision or condominium applications

Each subdivision or condominium application follows a three stage process:

  • Pending: A subdivision or condominium application is considered pending when it is first submitted to the City.
  • Draft Approved: Once the subdivision or condominium plan satisfies all the criteria set by the City it is considered Draft Approved. Conditions are set by the City and other parties (such as Bell Canada and Canada Post).
  • Final Approval: Once all conditions set in the second stage are met, the City gives Final Approval to the plan. The plan is then sent to the Land Registry Official of Ontario to be officially registered by the Province.

Residential development by community

The urban residential subdivision maps outline all active subdivisions, whether pending or draft approved, and registered plans by plan number. The respective tables identify the individual urban subdivisions by plan number, plan name, dwelling type and estimated total units.
