What do I need to submit?

Location plan

A location plan needs:

  • a scale 1:1250 or 1:2500 (base your plan on an ordnance survey map)
  • to show at least two named roads and all the surrounding land and buildings
  • to show house numbers on all the properties
  • a red line around the edge of the property you are applying for planning permission (including the garden)
  • a blue line around any other nearby land you own

Site plan

A site plan needs:

  • a scale of 1:200 or 1:500
  • to show proposals on the plan so we can see the development in relation to the existing property and neighbouring properties (include measurements to neighbouring properties)
