Reading a plan of subdivision

Many of our clients ask us what the difference between a sales plan and a plan of subdivision is, and it helps to understand this. The sales plan acts as the main marketing brochure for the developer. It is usually specific to the stage of development that is currently on offer whilst the plan of subdivision gives more specific in-depth information.

sales plan

A sales plan shows:

  • The stage currently on offer and the lot sizes
  • Basic dimensions, such as frontages
  • Which lots are still available for purchase
  • Contact details for enquiries and where you can get more
  • information
