What is a Replat?
A replat shall include modification of an existing plat that creates new lots or alters any previously dedicated rights-of-way or easements, as provided in Section 212.014 and 212.015 of the Texas Local Government Code. Any replat that meets the requirements of an amending plat (Section 212.016), including the combination of existing lots, can be processed as a minor plat.

A change in a plat that does not fall within any of the categories listed above and does not meet the
conditions for vacation of a plat, is a replat and may be recorded and is controlling over the preceding plat only if the replat:

1. Is signed and acknowledged by the owners of the property being replatted,

2. Is approved by the Planning and Zoning Commission after a public hearing on the matter at which
parties in interest and citizens have an opportunity to be heard, and

3. Does not attempt to amend or remove any covenants or restrictions.

If during the preceding five years, any of the area to be replatted was limited by an interim or permanent zoning classification, to a residential use for not more than two residential units per lot; or any lot in the preceding plat was limited by deed restrictions to a residential use for not more than two residential units per lot, the notice and voting requirements of Section 212.015, Local Government Code, are applicable and must be followed.
