SUBDIVISION
 
A subdivision of land is the division of a tract of land into two or more building lots. (81L)
 
The division of a tract of land into two or more lots is not a subdivision within the meaning of the subdivision control law if each proposed building lot fronts on a qualified way and has the required frontage as specified in the subdivision control law. (81L)
 
Each proposed building lot must front on (a) a public way or a way which the municipal clerk certifies is maintained and used as a public way, or (b) a way shown on a plan approved and endorsed under the subdivision control law, or (c) a way in existence when the subdivision control law took effect in the community which in the opinion of the planning board provides adequate access to the proposed building lots.
