To ensure you get your Site Location Plan right first time please see our Diagram of a Site Location Plan
Most planning applications need a site location plan which shows the proposed development in its surrounding context and a block plan or site plan which shows the development in more detail. These plans enable the local planning authority (LPA) to identify the land to which the application refers to and should be based on an up-to-date Ordnance Survey map.
For more information on the kind of applications that require these plans please see What is a Block Plan and why do I need one.
This guide specifies the location plan you must submit with your planning application. You can create and buy the plan you need from us and attach this to your online application. If you are posting your application, three copies of your location Plan plus the original are required; we can supply 6 hard copies with each order.
Your site location plan must conform with a fairly rigid set of requirements. If it doesn’t, then your planning application is likely to be rejected, delaying the process and possibly costing you money.
The location plan should indicate the direction of north. It must be drawn to a standard specified metric scale; typically, scales are at 1:1250 or 1:2500 for larger sites. It should also be sized to fit on either A3 or A4 paper.
You can create and buy your location and block plan directly from this website and attach it to your online application. If you are posting your application, three copies of your Location Plan plus the original are required. We supply six copies in either black and white or colour with each order.
