Improving the Quality of Planning Maps and Site Plans

by on October 6, 2010

LPAs regularly tell us that incorrect plans are a common cause of invalid planning applications.

We are helping address this by asking all Local Authorities who don’t offer plans themselves or don’t have a preferred supplier to direct their customers to the Planning Portal’s ‘Buy a Plan’ service.

The service includes guidance on what plans need to be submitted and offers links to the Portal’s accredited suppliers, each of whose mapping services have been evaluated and approved.

Using these suppliers will ensure applications are not invalidated because of incorrect plans.

LPAs
Linking to the service couldn’t be easier! There’s a button (just click it and copy)

together with a link www.planningportal.gov.uk/buyamap that can simply be added to your planning homepage along with the example explanatory text (in italics below).

Every planning application needs a site location plan and block plan showing the location and boundaries of the site you are planning to work on. You can use the Planning Portal’s ‘Buy a Plan’ service to ensure that you meet our requirements, whether you are a planning professional or first-time applicant.

Please contact Beccy Greenfield for any assistance.

To ensure your site plans meet the requirements simply visit the Portal mapping page.
