Submission of a sketch plan, even though strongly recommended, is not mandatory and shall not constitute formal filing of a plan with the Borough.
C. 
Sketch plan reviews are not required to be consistent with procedures of Section 508 of the Pennsylvania Municipalities Planning Code,[1] as amended. Sketch plans prepared for review and discussion should include those items listed in § 170-17 of this chapter.

Applicants for proposals other than those described in Subsection A are still encouraged to discuss such proposals and submit sketch plans for review.

With the exceptions specifically noted in this chapter, a preliminary plan is required for applications which propose new streets, all land development, as defined in § 170-6, and subdivision plans of 10 or more lots. All other plans may be submitted as final plans in accordance with § 170-9. Preliminary plans may be filed with the Borough on any business day. The Borough Planning Commission and Borough Council will officially review a plan at particular meetings in accordance with a schedule that shall be published as a public notice.

If defective, the application may be returned to the applicant with a statement that the application is incomplete within the seven-day period; otherwise the application shall be deemed accepted for filing as of the date of submission.

The applicant may appeal a decision by the Borough Manager/Secretary under this section to the Borough Council in accordance with § 170-50 of this chapter.

The applicant's failure to accept or reject such conditions within the five-day period shall be considered to be a rejection of the same and conditional approval by Borough Council shall be automatically revoked.
