Act 247 County Review

Under the Municipalities Planning Code (Act 247) any proposed subdivision, land development proposal or ordinance revision, is to be submitted to the County Planning Commission for advisory review. View application and fee schedule.

Note: Use the application to submit a sketch plan for informal review. Choose "Unofficial Sketch Plan" under "Type of Review Requested". There is no fee for a sketch plan review.

Digital Submittal Process

Online submittals are required through the Chester County Self Service portal, or CSS, for all applications required for review under Act 247. A registered CSS account is required to complete the process. All documents related to the submittal should be PDFs and the signed and dated Referral Application must be included. PDF copies of plan drawings must be flattened before uploading. Unflattened plans will be returned for correction.

Fee Payment

Once your plan has been processed, an invoice will be generated. CSS account holders can access the online payment system 24/7 to enter payment information directly. Most major credit card brands are accepted with a processing fee. Payment by check (mail or in-person) or via credit card at the Planning Commission office also remains available. Please wait to receive an invoice before submitting the payment. Please note: that the review process will not begin until the plan, completed Referral Application form, and payment have been received.
