Most planning applications will require a site plan (also called a block plan) and a Location Plan. You will need to submit a planning applications for new developments, such as building a house, extending a house, adding a conservatory or extension. You will also need to submit a planning application to change the use of land or buildings such as converting an office to residential use. Additionally demolishing a building in England may require planning permission.
If you own a listed building you will need Listed Building consent for any works that in the view of the planning authority alter the character of the building. This can even include repainting windows and doors or putting up a satelite dish.
In Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland you will need Conservation Area consent if you wish to demolish any or part of a building in a Conservation Area. In scotland most works to the outside of a building or structure in a conservation area will require planning permission. To obtain this consent you will need to submit a Block Plan.
Developments involving Telecommunications, demolition, agriculture and forestry may require a prior Notification Application to be made. If you do need to submit a Prior Notification Application you will likely need a Site Plan and Site Location plan. The requirements vary depending on your local authority so it's best to seek advice from your planning department prior to any work.
Building Control applications are required for most structural work and sometimes to extend electrical or heating systems. More Details on what is required can be found at the Planning Portal Website
Applications need to be made under the Building Regulations if you are proposing to undertake many forms of structural work (including new-build and alteration) or, in some cases, alter or extend electrical or heating systems.
To register ownership or leashold of land, or to transfer land the Land Registry will need an accurate Ordnance Survey plan. Often they will require a 1:500 scale plan, although they may need a 1:1250, 1:2,500 or 1:5,000 scale plan if the area is larger.
It is important to note that the Ordnance Survey plan is only the basis for your land registry plan, the boundaries shown by Ordnance Survey do not show the precise extent of ownership that a title Deed Plan would show.
For Land Registry purposes, these plans are normally prepared in Black and White.
