​County Land Development — Plan Submittal and Review

Mecklenburg County Land Development reviews site development plans for the six Towns: Cornelius, Davidson, Huntersville, Matthews, Mint Hill and Pineville.

NEWS FLASH – CHANGES TO COUNTY & TOWNS PLAN REVIEW PROCESS:

Mecklenburg County and the six Towns are making some changes to our site plan review process in order to reduce the number of land development plan review cycles.  To meet this goal, Mecklenburg County, the Six Towns, and NCDOT met over a period of 5 months, collaborated with site design professionals, and developed the following strategies: a) Improve Predictability, b) Enhance Communication, and c) Increase Flexibility.  Over the last several months, these strategies have been pilot-tested, but full implementation will begin April 1, 2016.  A summary of the changes include:
•    Plan review turn-around time goal of less than 21 calendar days and less than 2.5 cycles
•    Clear delineation of plan review comments (requirements vs. suggestions)
•    New meeting requirements (Pre-submittal and Pre-resubmittal) with all parties
•    Comment response table requirement
•    Slip sheeting provisions

Details of these changes can be found in the new Town & County Plan Intake Checklist.  For additional information please contact Adam Nowocin at 980-314-3232 or Mike MacIntyre at 980-314-3240.  To schedule Pre-submittal or Pre-resubmittal meetings, select Pre-Submittal Meeting Town Contacts.

Plans should be submitted through the Electronic Plan Management (EPM) system. EPM is a web-based application that automates plan submission, intake, routing, review, approval and management of land development plans.

Use Electronic Plan Ma​nagement for submitting:

  • commercial plans
  • revisions to approved commercial plans
  • Expedited Review of commercial plans
  • lot grading plans
  • residential subdivision plans
  • revisions to approved residential subdivision plans
  • Post-Construction Ordinance concept plans for either residential or commercial subdivisions or individual commercial sites
  • individual driveway plans
  • calculations for erosion control, pipe design, water quality BMP design and routing of storms
  • storm drainage as-built surveys
  • water quality and/or detention BMP as-built surveys
  • Post-Construction Ordinance BMP as-built surveys

For sites in the six Mecklenburg County Towns and their spheres of influence, also known as Extra-Territorial Jurisdictions (ETJ).

Questions? Call 980​-314-3234.

Required for Concept/Sketch/Rezoning Review:

  • Plans and calculations must be sealed by professional designer
  • Address verification for plan submittal
  • Traffic Impact Study (TIS) when applicable (may require an additional fee)

City of Charlotte Land Development uses Accela Citizen Access for electronic plan submittals. Accela is different from Electronic Plan Management.
