Welcome to the Plat Tracker
P&D Logo 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.
