A Green Title or Freehold subdivision will create individual single house lots that are completely independent of each other. The majority of residential Green Title subdivisions in Perth must have direct access to the Minster’s sewer and water lines. The minor service or private plumbing lines that connect to the future house must not cross from one Green Title lot to another. For this reason, Green Title subdivisions can be a costly exercise and careful consideration should be taken by the developer when choosing this option over a Survey Strata or Built Strata subdivision. Pro West Surveying can do a feasibility study and search of utility services for the developer to determine whether a Green Title is the viable option moving forward.
The Green Title subdivision process involves lodging a Form 1A subdivision application to the WA Planning Commission (WAPC). WAPC will refer the application to the local shire / council and service authorities such as Water Corporation, Western Power, Main Roads and the Department of Environment & Water. Following recommendations by these authorities WAPC will issue a determination of the subdivision within a 90-day statutory period. In the case of conditional approval WAPC will allow 3 years for completion of subdivision conditions before the application expires. Most small infill Green Title subdivisions can be completed in a period of 7-10 months.
