Getting your maps right

It's important to get your planning map right; without it your application could be invalidated.

Common mistakes made on Maps submitted with planning applications are: 

  • the map used is not up to date
  • the map is at the wrong scale or the scale bar is missing
  • the map is printed at the wrong size
  • the red outline is missing or incomplete
  • the blue outline is missing where it should be shown
  • there is not enough detail shown
  • not enough area is covered
  • How to get your Site Plan or Location plan accepted by the council


When preparing your planning application maps you should use:

  • Most recent revision of mapping
  • Best quality mapping available, we use Ordnance Survey Mastermap


Your map should include:

  • north arrow
  • clearly shown metric scale, this is a different scale for Location Plans and Site Plans.
  • red outline of the development area
  • blue outline of additional land owned if necessary
  • correct area mapped

The most common reason for planning applications being rejected by councils is that the accompanying plans are invalid. 

What Plans do I need to submit with my Planning Application?

You will normally need to submit a Site Plan (also called a Block Plan) and a Location Plan (also called a Site Location Plan).

How much do Planning Application Plans cost?

Our site plans are £24.50 and our location plans are £27.50. Printed maps are VAT free, but you must pay VAT on electronic maps.

How Quickly can I get a plan?

We can send electronic plans over within the hour by email.

What format are the Location and Site Plans?

Our Site and Location Plans are provided in electronic PDF format, or as printed paper copies.
