Submitting a Planning Application

Site Location Plans for Planning Applications

All planning applications need an up to date site location plan and a block plan (site plan) that shows the development location in more detail.  The location plan should be at a scale of  1:1250 or 1:2500 and the site plan at either 1:200 or 1:500.

A selection of map providers can be found at the Planning Portal on the following link: Buy a Planning Map. Please follow the guidance on the Planning Portal buy-a-planning-map  page when drawing your location plans.

Insert the electronic version of the map directly into an application on the Planning Portal or submit with the electronic version of the application or as a paper copy.

All location plans must show the OS licence number and we can’t accept location plans which are from the Land Registry or made using screen grabs.
