A subdivision is described as a "partition land" resulting in the restructuring of land boundaries, executed for the purpose of dividing it into smaller sections to organize it for future development and sales. Subdivisions are subject to local government regulations that need to be complied by contractors and property owners in order to implement their project.
In most cities in Texas, subdivision planning is required and a written plan must be created and submitted for approval to the appropriate local government agencies.
Land Surveying & Civil Engineering firms in Texas, such as REKHA Engineering, Inc., execute subdivision planning to create an overview of how a subdivision will be designed and managed, including the development of policies, rules and objectives to be implemented during construction of the project. Planning a subdivision requires professional expertise, knowledge and understanding of both construction and local government rules and regulations in building a subdivision.
