What is a location plan?

A location plan is a requirement for all planning applications. It must show the proposed development, including up to date mapping of the surrounding area.

A site location plan should contain:

  • A 1:1250 or 1:2500 scale.
  • A red line marked up to show where planning is sought, or with a blue line to show any other property owned on the plan.
  • A larger area of land than a ‘block plan’ (sometimes called a ‘site plan’).
  • The general locality of a site requiring planning consent.
  • Mapping features like property outlines, roads, and other geographical boundaries.
  • A north point and copyright information.

How much does a location plan cost?

Location plan costs can vary depending on the scale chosen (1:1250 or the larger 1:2500 scale), the mapping chosen and the vendor. A location plan at 1:1250 scale typically costs between £7.99 and £20, and a 1:2500 scale location plan costs between £55 and £75.

Buyaplan offers a location plan at £7.99, with a 10% saving when buying 2 different scales.

What’s the difference between a location and a block plan?

The difference between a location and block plan is the scale. Location plans are either 1:1250 or 1:2500 scale, whilst a block plan is normally 1:200 or 1:500 scale. A location plan is intended to show the general locality of a property. A block plan shows a far smaller area, typically the property itself.

Both of these plans are usually supplied on A4 or A3, but are increasingly being used in digital format to be uploaded to planning application sites or emailed.

What mapping is used on a location plan?

In the UK, the most common mapping used in location plans is supplied by the Ordnance Survey, however there are other mapping suppliers such as The GeoInformation Group.
