Site location plan

A site location plan is a map base that shows the location of the application site in relation to surrounding roads, buildings and other land.

Site location plans should:

  • Be taken from an up to date Ordnance Survey Base, or to an equivalent standard.
  • Be to a suitable scale of 1:1000, 1:1250 or 1:2500 for larger sites.
  • Where possible, cover an A4 sheet of paper with the application site in the centre of the plan.
  • Show adjoining road names and numbers.
  • Show the application site boundary outlined in red; the access to the site from a public highway should also be outlined in red.
  • Show any other adjoining land owned by the applicant outlined in blue.
