Location and Site Plans

Submitting a valid application and how to produce and pay for plans online

Every planning application needs a location plan and a site plan (also known as a block plan) to be submitted. These are supporting documents which show the location and boundaries of the site you are planning to work on.

Submitting invalid or insufficient plans can mean a delay for your application. The most common reason for us to return your planning application to you is that the accompanying plans are invalid. There's help and advice on the Planning Portal about getting your plans and supporting documentation right.

The Planning Portal - Buy a Plan service allows you to produce and purchase the required plans online from various sources including OS (Ordnance Survey), so you can work towards submitting a valid application.
