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.

Miss North

This service was so easy, I was starting to panic when I had to submit certain plans for my planning application, but this website made it a whole lot easier! Thank you!

Mrs Alexander

quick and easy to get map I required - and at a realistic price.


It was really easy to use UK Planning Maps. I was able to draw the red line around the property and add a title to the document with ease before downloading the document. The downloaded document included a marker showing North and the scale at the bottom of the page. Everything that I needed was included! I needed to contact customer services to increase the number of searches available and ask a couple of general questions, and was impressed that the call was answered quickly and the young lady was able to deal with my enquiry thoroughly with a polite and friendly manner. I would definitely use this service again or recommend it to anyone submitting their own planning application as I was. Thank you, UK Planning Maps.


Website was clear, download straightforward and hardcopy arrived within 4days


I was able to produce the map immediately allowing instant submission of planning application
