The surveyor generally knows the procedure for preparing a plot plan and the information required. Setbacks to all structures must be shown. If any structure is to be demolished, its location must be shown. Also, any easements must be indicated on the plan. Any new driveway must have the setback from the property line and its slope shown on the plan.
Trees with a diameter of 8 inches or more must be shown, and grades (before and after construction), must be shown. Some of these requirements may be waived if the work is of a minor nature.
