Requirements of a Location Plan for Planning

To be suitable for your planning application your site plan must show the whole of the development site, to a standard metric scale. It must be a standard paper size, and scale exactly when printed. 

There are a number of items that must be shown on the location plan, e.g. buildings, roads, footpaths on and adjacent to the site. 

The location plan should clearly show your proposed development.

Mr Miller

Did what the local authority wanted, at very reasonable cost.

Mr Akbar

The information on UK Planning Maps is precise and clear. However, the Land Registry maps are Black and White and may not at first sight be seen to be correctly shown on UK Planning Maps. But the information is correct, very clear, excellent and easy to use.

Mr Godden

Going back drawing plans after many years absence I have found that everything has changed. (I am 87). I found the UK Planning Maps site most useful and I am extremely pleased with the downloads and the paper maps they have supplied. I will probably take UK Planning Maps up on their offer of help later in the process of producing plans and maps for the modifications and additions to my site .

Mr Parsons

Competitive cost - Cheaper than obtaining from your local council.

Mr Spahiu

Spot on, convinient place to buy plans.

Miss Hogg

Easy to use site. Maps suitable for planning applications and support fast and very helpful if needed.


I'm a householder having to do an application because my house has no permitted rights-so I'm an amateur. the products of this web site allowed me to meet the needs easily and economically. I also like the idea that I'm helping the Orkney economy!
