1. Subdivision to take account of improvements and boundaries in any Crown grant
Be it therefore enacted by His Excellency the Governor of Western Australia, by and with the advice and consent of the Legislative Council thereof, that it shall be lawful for the Governor to direct an authorised land officer, that at the same time that the external lines of the blocks of allotments in each town are laid out for the purpose of defining the proper limits of the streets thereof, he shall cause each block to be subdivided into its proper number of component allotments having a special reference to the actual position of any substantial building or durable fence which may at present exist thereon so as to interfere to as small an extent as possible with any such substantial erections, but at the same time taking care to apportion to each allotment at least the full extent of boundaries contained in any grant or transfer in fee simple thereof made or to be made by the Crown.
