A 'subdivision' is a tract of land that is subdivided into smaller lots to be sold, typically for houses to be built on them.
For example. I buy a 4 acre lot of land, and then decide to subdivide it. I turn the 4 acre lot into 16 quarter-acre lots for sale.
A subdivision is also a term we use to describe a tract of land that has already been built on and subdivided.
In the United States, subdividing lots would be subject to local zoning laws.
In real estate property terms, a subdivision is a "sub-development" of a larger division of property. The term becomes easier to understand if you imagine a 1000 acre tract of land that has been zone for both commercial and residential use. A developer may come to the area, choose a 100 acre tract of the land, and build single family houses on it. This "development" becomes a "subdivision" of the overall development and it may actually have a name like "Paradise Acres". A person living there then might say, "I live in the Paradise Acres subdivision. Thanks. WB
