A topographic map, drawn at the same scale as the preliminary plat and with a contour interval of five feet or less referred to sea level datum, shall be prepared for the area covered by the proposed subdivision and such surrounding area as may be necessary to determine the direction of drainage flow within the subdivision.

The topographic information may be included on the preliminary plat.
Whenever the preliminary plat covers only a part of an applicant's contiguous holding, the applicant shall submit, at a scale of not less than one inch equals 200 feet, a sketch in pen or pencil showing the proposed subdivision area together with its proposed street system and an indication of the probable future street system, lot arrangement and location of park reservations for the remaining portion of the tract.

At a later date, either the subdivider or the Planning Board may propose a revision to the general layout before submitting additional sections of the tract for approval and filing. This map shall also show topographic data with a contour interval of five feet or less, the title of the proposed subdivision, the property owner's name, scale, North arrow and date. This information may be presented as part of the preliminary plat.
