Plat Integration Project

Posted on November 8, 2017 at 9:16 AM by Barrett Chappell

The Dinwiddie County Circuit Court Clerk’s Office has completed an integration project that links deed book plat records, to individual online property cards. The project included 18,000 parcels, was completed over a period of nine months and was funded entirely by fees collected by the Clerk’s Office.

Beginning November 1, 2017, citizens were able to view their plat online through the Dinwiddie County website, as opposed to visiting the Clerk’s Office. Data may be accessed via personal computer or mobile device, 24 hours/day at no cost to the citizen.

J. Barrett Chappell, Clerk of the Circuit Court stated, “It has been my vision to use technology to provide citizens greater access to records. This project represents a collaboration between my office, the Commissioner of the Revenue and Dinwiddie County’s Information Technology Department. Without the hard work and dedication of each of these offices, the project would not have been possible.”

Regarding this project, Commissioner of the Revenue Lori Stevens stated “I am extremely pleased that citizens will now have this information available at their fingertips any time of day or night. My office will work diligently to ensure that the information is maintained and remains accurate and up-to-date as plats are recorded in the Clerk’s Office.”
