PLANNING APPLICATION MAPS
Most local authorities require two OS Sitemaps to be submitted with each planning application:
To show plot boundary and outline of any permanent buildings. Typically 0.9ha in area at a scale of 1:500 printed at A4.
To locate the property in the surrounding area. It helps to have at least one road name visible. Typically 4ha in area at a scale of 1:1250 (or possibly 1:2500 in rural areas) printed at A4.
Inaccurate, out-of-date, unlicensed, or incorrectly displayed plans are the most common reasons for an application being turned down.
