Welcome to the Plat Tracker
Plat Tracker allows land planners, civil engineers and surveyors to submit subdivision
plat applications for review and presentation to the Houston Planning Commission.
Applicants and the public will be able to track the progress of plat applications. Regional
agencies that have an interest in land development in Houston and Houston's ETJ will use Plat Tracker
to share files and communicate their comments to the Planning staff for each application.
The general public can keep up with land development proposals in their neighborhoods
by viewing and downloading Planning Commission agendas, data spreadsheets regarding
applications, meeting minutes, etc.

NEW fee and procedure for subdivision plats requiring public notice!
The Planning and Development Department will begin collecting a notice mail-out fee for all subdivision plat applications that require public notice per Chapter 42-47 and 42-83 starting January 6th, 2017. Instead of providing addressed, stamped envelopes with your public hearing or variance application, you will pay a fee of approximately $3.00 per address that must be notified. This fee covers the cost of preparing and mailing the notice package.
New information will be required on the Plat Tracker pages listed below for subdivision plat applications requiring notice:
- Step 2: Check "Notice Mail-Out"
- Step 7: Enter the "Notice Mail-Out- No. of envelopes per appraisal district records"
- Step 8: Verify the amount to be paid
You are no longer required to bring a notification packet with envelopes as the department will be responsible for preparing envelopes for mailing letters to all property owners in the notice area.
These changes will start appearing on Plat Tracker around December 20th and this fee will apply to new applications submitted on or after January 6th, 2017. Any applications in incomplete status during this transition period will still provide the notice mail-out packages. Additional information will be made available on our webpage as we approach this date.
Signs are still required: You must continue to place the notification sign on the property as required by Chapter 42 and send pictures of the sign to the staff to verify the placement.
