Learn about Delaware County’s process for recording approved plans.
For a plan to be recorded, it must have been reviewed by the Delaware County Planning Commission (DCPC) and approved and signed by the municipal Council or the Board of Supervisors/Commissioners.
The applicant must then bring the approved plan to the Delaware County Planning Department where staff will confirm the Commission’s review of the plan and stamp and sign it. To expedite the stamping process, please bring the “DCPD File Number” that can be found on all correspondence from our office regarding the plan.
The applicant must then go to the Delaware County Board of Assessment-Appeals (ground floor of the Government Center building) to obtain a tax map number and folio number for lots that have been created via a subdivision or document/validate these numbers for existing lots.
The plan will then be recorded at the Delaware County Recorder of Deeds office (first floor of the Government Center building). The Recorder of Deeds requires plans for recording to be a minimum of 18" X 30" and no larger than 36" X 46". The fee for recording a plan can be found at: https://www.delcopa.gov/departments/pdfs/RodFEES.pdf.
