Partial survey plans

A partial survey under cl.17 Surveying and Spatial Information Regulation 2012 can be prepared where it is intended to subdivide a large rural parcel of land, in circumstances where the cost of a full survey would be prohibitive and the integrity of the remaining parcel boundary definitions can be maintained by compilation.

The partial survey must define:

  • the new subdivision line(s)
  • the terminals of the subdividing line(s), and
  • the intercepted boundaries.


  1. Plans that comply with these requirements do not require prior written approval of the Plan and Title Advisor.
  2. Subdivision of parcels in built up areas will by necessity require the preparation of a full plan of survey.
