What are recording requirements for a Subdivision Plan?
  • Subdivision plans are to be between 17" x 22" and 34" x 44". Three copies are required. 
  • The Chester County Planning Commission and proper municipal authorities must sign the plans. The plan must be recorded within 90 days of the municipal signature or a 90-day letter from an official of the municipality needs to be attached to the plan. The letter must state that the official is waiving the 90-day recording period on behalf of the municipality. This letter is then recorded as the first page of the plan.
  • All subdivision plans are available online and a large map can be printed out in our office for $5.00 per page.
