What is a parcel map (PM)?

A “parcel map” is a land division map processed through the Planning and Natural Resources Department resulting in the creation of four (4) or fewer lots, which is specifically authorized by the State Subdivision Map Act and Chapter 18.25 of the Kern County Land Division Ordinance. In the case of commercial, industrial, and agricultural zoned property, more than four lots can be created by parcel map. Those exceptions can be determined from the list of exceptions for processing subdivision tract maps in Section 18.15.020 of the Kern County Land Division Ordinance.
