Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, says the Government intends to simplify the subdivision application process in order to make land ownership easier for Jamaicans. Subdivision is the process of dividing a parcel of land into a number of lots and obtaining individual titles (splinter titles) for each lot.

A subdivision can be useful for residential, commercial, agricultural or industrial purposes.Concerns have been raised that the process for approval is often cumbersome and challenging, involving assessment and review of application by various agencies, and needs to be simplified.The Prime Minister said in order to make the process more expeditious consultations and partnerships will be required with various stakeholders, adding that the objective is to eliminate some of the redundant steps in the procedure and reduce the bureaucracy.  

“We will get it done, I am confident of that.  Whether it means speeding up the cadastral mapping and the titling process through the Land Administration and Management Programme (LAMP), the Government is seized of the issues,” he said.
