How do I create a Location Plan?

What is a location plan?

A location plan is the “WHERE” aspect of your planning application. It shows where you are proposing your development and will include a fairly large area around the development site.

It is typically submitted at a scale of 1:1250.

What is the purpose of a location plan?

It helps to show wider impact on the location. If your planning authority requests both a block plan and a site plan they will require more detail of the area around the proposed development, details further out than your boundaries.

- Nearby roads, buildings and other properties.
