Why do I need a location or site plan?

Two Team Members Working

Councils will reject plans that are invalid.

Most planning applications need a location plan which shows the proposal in its surrounding context and a site plan (also known as a block plan) which shows the development in more detail, it needs to display any roads and/or buildings on land adjoining the application site.

You can create and buy your location and site plans and attach them to your online application. If you are not sure whether your plans are suitable or require further assistance you should contact your Local Planning Authority for advice.

 View our guidance to help you better understand what your location plan and site plan should look like (PDF).

Everything you need to know about location and site plan applications

The Location Plan should show the planning authority where the site is, clearly indicated by a red border around the property boundary, this should include any land needed for access to the site. If you own any land already on the same plan, this should be coloured blue around its boundary. The plan should have a north indicator and be of A4 in size. A Block/Site Plan shows exactly where you are intending to develop within the boundaries of a site. You should include any associated new work such as hard surfaces, driveways, walls and fences. The plan should be clear as to what you are proposing and often it is more helpful to your application if you include two plans, one which shows the current site as it is and one that shows how the site will look after the development has taken place. As with location, the plan should include a north indicator and be on A4; however larger developments may require a larger size.

Yes, our PDF plans are fully compliant with planning authority requirements.

Yes, our plans come in PDF format for home users which can be easily printed using your regular printing software. You will need Adobe Reader to open the PDF format or, if you are using Windows 10 they can be opened in the native Windows app or MacOS preview, for users of Apple computers.

Planning permission is a complex process and planning authorities can reject a planning application for many reasons. If your planning application is rejected and the cause of the rejection is singularly shown to be down to the plan you purchased from ReQuestaPlan and there is a technical issue as to why the plan is wrong, we will work with you to produce a correct plan. Planning applications that are rejected because of user error are unfortunately not covered by this service.

Yes, once you have drawn your plan you can select the preview plan icon before paying. This shows the plan as it will be produced in the final output.

Yes, you can select to download your map in DWG format, which can be used with AutoCAD v19 or newer. If you are using an older version of AutoCAD, we recommend that you also download the free DWG Trueview software from Autodesk. This will allow you to open and resave DWGs as a compatible legacy version. Download DWG Trueview
