Plat Approval, Subdivision, Resubdivision and Consolidation
A plat is a map of an individual parcel or parcels of real estate. Generally a plat graphically identifies the boundaries of a coherent piece of land as identified through documents recorded with the Cook County Recorder of Deeds. The plat also may show the location of various features on, in or above the land. Under certain circumstances the division or joining of parcels of land may trigger State or City requirements to record a new plat. The applications below concern this process.
