(B) Subdivision types.
(1) Major subdivision. Application that involves the creation of more than five lots.
(2) Minor subdivision. Application that involves the creation of five or fewer lots. (See § 151.187, panhandle lot subdivision, a type of minor subdivision.)
(3) Lot split. Application that involves:
(a) The division of a single lot or parcel into no more than two lots, provided that the division does not involve any new streets or easements of access. In instances where a new street or easement of access is created, the subdivision shall be processed as a minor subdivision;
