Recent changes in state law now allow certain plats to be recorded without the prior approval of Henry County. Pursuant to the Official Code of Georgia Annotated §15-6-67, no approval from Henry County is required to record a plat if no new streets or roads are created or no new utility improvements are required or no new sanitary sewer or approval of a septic tank is required.
A recorded plat is required for all building permit applications; however, no building permit can be issued on any lot that does not meet the minimum dimensional standards as required by zoning. Zoning information may be reviewed in Chapter 2 of the Unified Land Development Code or by contacting the Planning and Zoning Department at 770.288.7526.
If you have questions about your plat or property, please contact our Plan Review and Environmental Compliance Department at 770.288.6190.
