A. 
Sketch Plans. Applicants are strongly encouraged, but not required, to submit a sketch plan for any subdivision or land development proposal, in accordance with the requirements of §§ 22-303 and 22-304. Submission of a sketch plan does not constitute a formal submission for approval of a subdivision or land development.
B. 
Preliminary Plans. A preliminary plan is required to be submitted for all proposals for subdivision and/or land development, except for those which qualify as minor plans. Preliminary plans shall be submitted in accordance with the requirements of §§ 22-305 and 22-306.
Applicants may be required by Hatboro Borough Council to submit plans and additional information as a part of the preliminary plan submission where a portion of the property being proposed for subdivision or land development could be further subdivided or developed. The plans and additional information shall show how the immediate proposal can fit logically into an overall plan for the entire site.
C. 
Final Plans. A final plan is required to be submitted for all proposals for subdivision and/or land development. Final plans shall be submitted in accordance with the requirements of §§ 22-307 and 22-308.
D. 
Minor Plans. Applications which qualify as minor plans may be submitted for concurrent preliminary and final plan processing and approval, in accordance with the standards and requirements of § 22-310.
E. 
Other Approvals. The applicant is responsible for making the appropriate applications for various federal, state, county and municipal permits as appropriate.
F. 
Waiver/Modification of Requirements. The Hatboro Borough Council may grant a modification or waiver of the requirements of one or more provisions of this chapter, if the literal enforcement of them will exact undue hardship or is unnecessary because of peculiar conditions pertaining to the land in question, provided that such modifications will not be contrary to the public interest and that the purpose of and intent of this chapter is observed or when the applicant demonstrates that an alternative standard to a requirement set forth in the ordinance would provide equal or superior results in furtherance of the purposes and intent of this chapter. A written request must be made to the Borough for consideration by the Hatboro Borough Council upon the recommendation of the Borough Planning Commission. The Borough Planning Commission shall have a thirty-day period to review and/or comment to Borough Council on waiver/modification requests. The waiver/modification request shall state the following:
(1) 
Name of application for subdivision and/or land development.
(2) 
Basis and facts of unreasonableness or hardship on which the request is based.
(3) 
Provision(s) of the ordinance involved.
(4) 
Minimum modification or standard requested if an alternative standard is being requested.
All waivers/modifications granted shall be documented on the plan with notation as to the date when they were approved by the Hatboro Borough Council.
G. 
Pre-Application Meeting. It is recommended that any applicant considering a land development or subdivision within the Borough meet with the Borough Zoning Officer prior to making a formal submission.
H. 
Deferral of Submission Requirements. The Borough staff may allow the deferral of the timing of certain submission requirements from the preliminary plan stage to the final plan stage if:
(1) 
The applicant commits in a manner that is legally binding upon the applicant and his/her successors to not construct any buildings or improvements or major re-grading until after final plan approval.
(2) 
The Borough staff determines such submission information is not necessary to determine feasibility of the preliminary plan. Such deferrals may include, but are not limited to, street and utility profiles, detailed grading, and erosion and sedimentation plans.

§ 22-303 Sketch Plan Submission Requirements.

[Ord. 1005, 5/23/2011]
1. 
Purposes.
A. 
To inform the Borough of an applicant's intent to subdivide and/or develop a property, and graphically show the concepts and extent of the proposal.
B. 
For the Borough to provide advice and guidance to an applicant so that:
(1) 
Overall layout and circulation issues can be resolved prior to preparation of preliminary plans.
(2) 
The preliminary plan approval process may then be able to proceed faster and more efficiently.
C. 
To show how a tract of land may be further subdivided or developed in cases where only a portion of a property is currently under an active proposal, with a logical pattern of streets and access.
D. 
To facilitate a cooperative effort between the Borough and the applicant to resolve significant subdivision and/or land development issues prior to the preparation of preliminary plans.
E. 
This plan shall have no legal standing with regard to future plan approvals but shall be considered as a guide for future development.
2. 
It is to the applicant's advantage to show as much of the requested information as possible. Although the Borough Planning Commission will discuss any plan presented, a lack of significant information may result in little useful guidance to the applicant.
3.

A. 
The entire tract boundary and total acreage.

K. 
Any additional information which the applicant believes will help explain the proposal.
