Subdividing Land Perth

Land Subdivision

Are you planning on subdividing your block of land in Perth? While this can bring great success and profitability to your property, it’s also a complex process with many moving parts.

It’s important to do your own research, speak to your local government, and conduct feasibility assessments prior to undergoing any work. Commencing subdivision works without prior knowledge and understanding can be extremely expensive, and dangerous.

Once your local government has provided you with the necessary information, you can begin the process of subdividing your land and connecting the power.

Subdivision Process In WA

Beginning the subdivision process

Firstly, you’ll need to lodge an application for subdivision with the Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC) and pay any associated fees. The commission will assess your application, and send it to Western Power for electrical recommendations and advice.

Once you receive your application back, you can then begin the process of carrying out Western Power’s recommendations to connect power to your property. The commission may attach conditions to the approval which will need to be considered.



Contact a subdivision electrician

Once you’ve received your recommendations from Western Power, it’s time to call the professionals. When you create a new lot, you need to set up an underground point of supply, as well as connect your meter box and wiring. This should only be completed by licensed subdivision electricians.

As your subdivision process continues, we can help with many other services including electrical installations, lighting supply, and outdoor lighting design and installations. For more information on how we can help you with subdividing your land, give us a call.

Subdivision Costs
