I own multiple, adjacent lots in Lake Wynonah and I’d like to combine them into one lot. What do I need to do?
South Manheim Township requires the submission of a Complete Annexation Plan to the Township for review and approval. If you are planning on conveying an entire parcel to an adjoining parcel under the same ownership within the Low-Density Residential Zoning District for the sole purpose of increasing lot size, and not for the purpose of creating a separate new lot or a land development, you may submit a deed of consolidation and plot plan exhibit.
The plot plan exhibit will need to be prepared by a registered surveyor or professional engineer and submitted to the Township. Plan requirements can be found within the Township’s Subdivision and Land Development Ordinance (as amended). Once the plot plan exhibit and deed of consolidation have been prepared and submitted to the Township with the applicable application fee, they will be reviewed by the Township Planning Commission during their regularly scheduled meeting. If the plot plan and deed are found in compliance, the Planning Commission will recommend approval to the Board of Supervisors. The Board of Supervisors will then review the plan during their meeting and if found acceptable, will approve the plan and deed.
The plan and deed will then be recorded at the County Recorder of Deeds office. After recording, your lots have been officially combined. Please note you cannot prepare a deed of consolidation and record it at the County Recorder of Deeds office without Township review and approval. By doing so will be in violation of the Township’s Subdivision and Land Development Ordinance.
