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 Graham

I bought a map for a planning application and found the service quick and easy to use. I will be using this service again in future.


Staff were very helpful and friendly when contacted. Issues around using the web site with regard to moving the map in the frame and when the OS disclaimer is shown on purchases. Both probably obvious if you had used the site before. Overall excellent site with friendly staff.

Mr Rafferty

On using this service for the first time I found it straight forward, a user friendly site and a range of options for various scales and plan sizes. I feel the cost is competitive and an instant response to my order. I will be using this service again, many thanks.

Ms S A Stewart

Mr wood

Very good services, you can speak to real people and they corrected my mistake as to site location for free - cannot be faulted


Was impressed with ease of finding map via postcode and even more impressed with customer service. Response to my query about a mistake made by me was quick and solution given with clear instruction was great. Thank you


Been using them for a while now, very easy website to use. Had an issue locating a property early this week and they kept perservering until we git it right. Highly recommended.

Easy to use even for an old fogey like me. All the information available to support Land Registry application.

Ms Harms

I used the website to create a Site Location Plan. I had previously tried a couple of others but found the tools awkward and, in one case, used up 5 map views with no satisfactory outcome. This website provided a suitable page in about 5 minutes. Very satisfied customer.

Mr Robertson

Easy to use, Good choice of options including using for planning Thank you

Mr McGee

Excellent and instant service. And half the price of the map my local planning authority offered to provide!
