When is a plot plan or new survey required?
A plot plan or a new survey is required for all residential permits where the "footprint" of a primary or accessory building changes. This includes decks, porches, and storage buildings. However, staff does have the authority to waive the survey if the construction is obviously not near any setbacks or easements.

Modifications inside the existing building shell do not require a plot plan or survey.
