A much asked question. The scale of a site plan or is typically 1:1250. This means the map, when printed onto an A4 sheet would be 1250 times smaller than the location in real life. So for example 1 cm on the map would cover 1,250 cm in the actual site location, that's 12.5 metres. Site plans are typically need to show the overall context of a planning application rather than the more detailed block plan, which is typically 1:200 or 1:500. We hope that helps!
