Site Location Plan

A site location plan is a plan which identifies the land to which the application relates drawn to an identified scale, e.g. 1:1250, and showing the direction of North.

The application site should be edged clearly with a red line. A blue line should be drawn around any other land owned by the applicant, close to or adjoining the application site. All land necessary to carry out the proposed development should be included, for example, land required for access to the site from a public highway, visibility splays, landscaping, car parking and related open areas around buildings.

Please refer to the Planning Portal: Guidance on Site Location Plans

Please note that we cannot accept plans that are:

  • Land Registry documents
  • Show OS Crown copyright as an acknowledgement
  • Photocopy or screen grab image 
  • Copied from an existing OS map if using hand drawn maps
  • Do not show the correct licence number if you wish to print or copy maps for applications

The most common reason for planning applications being rejected by councils is that the accompanying plans are invalid.  Buying your plans from one of the Planning Portal's accredited suppliers means you are one step closer to submitting a valid application
