For a permit to be issued for new construction, the property in question must be a parcel constituting a single platted lot.  In the case of single-family construction, properties made up of a portion of a lot, or of portions of several lots must be platted into one lot of record.  In either case, an amending plat must be submitted before a building permit can be issued for construction.

Where an existing lot is to be split to create two smaller lots, a replat is required.  Please contact the Chief Planning Official with any questions regarding platting.


Amending Plat

An amending plat can be approved administratively, without the need for approval by P&Z, when the subject platting will not create an additional lot.  Properties made up of a portion of a lot, or of portions of more than one lot can be platted into a single lot of record with an amending plat.  The following documents must be submitted for approval:

  • Completed application.
  • $150.00 filing fee.
  • A preliminary plat prepared in compliance with the Amending Plat Guidelines.
  • Six (6) signed copies upon approval of preliminary plat.
  • One (1) filed copy must be returned after submittal to Dallas County.

Replat

If a plat will create an additional lot, as in the case of single-family attached lots, then a replat is required.  A replat may be accepted without the need for approval by the Planning & Zoning Commission, unless there are more than four (4) lots involved in the replat.  The following documents must be submitted for approval:

  • Completed application.
  • $ 150 filing fee, unless plat requires Planning and Zoning Commission approval.
  • A preliminary plat prepared in compliance with the Replat Guidelines.
  • Six (6) signed copies upon approval of preliminary plat.  Must be submitted prior to the P&Z meeting.
  • Approved, signed copies taken to Dallas County.
  • One (1) filed copy must be returned after submittal to Dallas County.
