The required map was located quickly and UK Planning Maps provided an efficient service.
Helpful , efficient and professional . I know nothing at all about site plans and Rachel made everything very easy . Thank you .
I’m unfamiliar with maps and plans but found it quick and easy to use. There’s one or two things that could be improved, or that I need to discover if they’re there, to make it slightly easier. It took me longer than I had anticipated (because I was fussy!) but I achieved very pleasing results. I recommend it and give five stars.
Good and easy to use
Very good and straight forward
Fast and professional service. Thank you
I managed to order on line but needed to phone in. The lady I spoke to was extremely helpful. Very pleased.
This was the first time that I have used this site. I found it very easy to navigate and excellent value for money. I would have no hesitation in recommending this site.
This was the first time that I have used this site. I found it very easy to navigate and excellent value for money. I had one query (about the Northing arrow) and phoned to check this. Despite it being the holiday period, I got an immediate reply which answered my question. I would have no hesitation in recommending this site.
good quality and very fast delivery. Received on email
Had to phone up because all my requirements couldn’t be implemented through recommendations. A very polite and understanding person, answered my call, who was very professional and guided me through the process. Within 10mins my site location was submitted and accepted. Really pleased with the service from UK planning maps. Will definitely use their service if needed without hesitation.
Very easy and simple process
This was my first map purchase from UK Planning Maps. I was impressed with the ability to centre the required map on exactly the position needed and also with the facility to outline the site edged red and inset a title text before finalising the map purchase. The speed of production of the on-line map and its quality were impressive and I have to say that the price charged represented good value for money. The administrative steps required to place my first order were very easy and straightforward to follow, even though I was setting an account up for the first time. Needless to say I shall be using UK Planning Maps again - I can't fault the service at all - and by the way I have had no previous dealings with this Company whatsover
Once I got my head around the system, about 5 minutes in my case, it was easy. Very pleased with the quality of the 'free' printouts.
Quick and easy with friendly and helpful customer service
Great service, fast and reasonably priced. Highly recommend
The representative I spoke with was extremely pleasant. She sorted my difficulty quickly and drew the red boundary around my very irregular site for me. The service was so quick and efficient and Planning accepted it without comment. Delighted. Thank you.
Gave me just what I needed with very little hassle
Super helpful and quick easy to use
I was pleased with the very helpful service to me as i was having problems with the drawing my self , excellent service.

All planning applications* need site plan (also known as a block plan) which shows the development in detail and a site location plan (also known as a location plan) which shows the proposal in its surrounding context. 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 a list of other reasons you may need a site plan please see Applications that Require a Site or Block Plan
This guide outlines what Site Plan you must submit with your 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, you will need to send 4 copies of your Site Plan.
Please read through the following information to ensure you select the Block Plan you need. If you need any help creating your Site Plan please give us a call on our helpline 01856 898 022.
The site plan (also called a "block plan") should be drawn at an identified standard metric scale - this is normally 1:200 or 1:500. It should show the proposed development in relation to the site boundaries and other existing buildings on the site, with dimensions specified including those to the boundaries. It should also show the direction of North.
It should also include the following – unless they would NOT influence or be affected by the proposed development:
Your Site Plan needs to be based on up to date accurate mapping. We offer Ordnance Survey's Mastermap® data as the basis for all our Site / Block plans as we believe this is the best mapping available of Great Britain. Due to the very high quality of their data we can guarantee this will be accepted by your planning department.
Here's what Ordnance Survey say about their Mastermap® Database
"It is a continually updated database, containing 450 million geographic features found in the real world..." read more
There are a number of other applications you may need a site plan for, please see our applications that require a site plan page for more details and call us if you need further details.
You can create your Site Plan yourself online which can cost as little as £8.50 + VAT for the pdf. Some companies do charge more than this so it does pay to shop around.
Bear in mind that if you buy from one of the Suppliers that pay to advertise on the Planning Portal your Site Plan will cost more, however it is exactly the same map as provided by all the Ordnance Survey licensed partners.
If you have your architect create your plan you will also need to pay their fees as well.
Enter your postcode, you'll see a preview of your map and you'll be able to add the outlines you need. We will format your site plan as a pdf and send it to you instantly.
Site Plans are normally provided in PDF or jpeg format. We also offer Site or Block plans in MS Word format, to allow you to edit or add extra annotations as needed.
You can submit your site plan to your council in hard copy as paper documents. It is often easier to mark up your annotations on the paper document.
When ordering your site or block plan some companies will also sell you printed copies of your map, but beware this can cost as much as the map itself again!
Under the licence terms of your Ordnance Survey Site Plan you can print your map at home, but only 1 copy. However, most councils will require at least 3 copies of your site plan. It is best to order any printed copies you need from your map supplier.
If you need printed copies of your site plan please let us know at the time of ordering and we will send you out 6 free paper copies, you only pay for the P&P.
