Differences Between Regular Site Plans and Certified Site PlansFind more information from the following link(s):
Regular site plans are drawings that show the boundaries of the property and any structures existing or proposed on the property such as a wall check, house location survey or plat of lot. Certified Site Plans are obtained when a project receives official approval from Maryland National Capital Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC). The amount and level of detail required for that project's design is specified by M-NCPPC. This includes not only zoning requirements, but also other site requirements like recreational amenities, lighting and landscaping. Certified Site Plans reflect the highest level of detail M-NCPPC can require for development within Montgomery County. These plans act as the overall controlling legal requirements for a project and all permit and construction activities must abide by them.
