No subdivision or land development of any lot, tract or parcel of land shall be effected and no street, sanitary sewer, storm sewer, water main or other facilities and public utilities in connection therewith shall be constructed, opened or dedicated for public use or travel or for the common use of occupants of buildings abutting thereon except in strict conformance with the provisions of this chapter.
No lot in a subdivision shall be sold, no permit to erect any building upon land in a subdivision shall be issued and no building shall be erected in a subdivision unless and until a subdivision plan has been approved and recorded and until the improvements required by the governing body in connection therewith have either been constructed or guaranteed as hereinafter provided.
It is the intent of this section to permit a resolution of boundary disputes without requiring a full subdivision process. A one-time transfer of land through deed(s) between abutting property owners without recording a revised subdivision plan is permissible when the involved property of any one (1) owner:
A. 
Does not exceed five percent (5%) of that property;
B. 
Does not exceed five hundred (500) square feet; and
C. 
Is unbuildable under the applicable municipal codes.
A. 
The Borough Council may approve a division of one (1) piece of property into two (2) pieces without requiring the applicant to follow the requirements and procedures set forth herein, whenever the plot plan submitted shows that the lots are located on a public road, each lot contains the necessary area and frontage to comply with Chapter 260, Zoning and that the simple subdivision can be serviced by all necessary public utilities.
B. 
No lot less than one (1) acre may be subdivided unless all subdivided lots contain a minimum of fifty (50) feet of frontage on a public road and further comply with all pertinent zoning district provisions.
