Clarification on the concept of subdivision
CE 20 February 2013, Mrs BUIRET-FEDIT and others, Req. n ° 345.728
Article L. 442-1 of the Urban Planning Code defines the subdivision as the division in ownership or enjoyment of a land unit or several contiguous land units whose purpose is to create one or more lots to be built.
The Conseil d'Etat considers that a development operation, resulting in the division into two lots of landed property, is likely to constitute a subdivision provided it provides for the establishment of buildings on at least one of these two lots.
