Site Location Plans

  • Should be at an identified standard scale (normally 1:1250 scale for urban applications or 1:2500/1:10 000 for rural or larger applications)
  • The direction of north must be clearly marked
  • The plans should be accurately scaled to fit A4 or A3 paper.
  • Should show the date of survey or an Ordnance Survey licence number if appropriate and the date of purchase

  • A blue line should be drawn around any other land owned by you as the applicant, close to or next to the application site.

The Block plan (Site Detail Plan)

  • The Block Plan should again be drawn at an identified standard metric scale (often 1:200 scale or 1:500). It should show the proposed development in relation to the site boundaries and other existing buildings on site with the dimensions specified including those to the boundaries.
  • It should also show the direction of north and include the following, unless they would not influence or be affected by the proposed development;
  • All buildings, roads and footpaths on land adjoining the site including access arrangements
  • All public rights of way crossing or adjoining the site
  • The position of all trees on the site and those on adjacent land
  • The extent and the type of any hard surfacing
  • The boundary treatment including walls or fencing where this is proposed.
