Planning applications usually require a location plan (usually 1:1250 scale) and a site plan, or block plan (usually 1:500 scale) to be submitted as supporting documents.
Our site plans are 100% compliant.
Blackwell’s use the most up-to-date Ordnance Survey mapping which can be centred on any address or location in the UK and can be downloaded in minutes. We can also supply paper copies on request.
Please use our dedicated Planning Portal to create and order maps online.
If you require planning maps for Northern Ireland please contact us or 0800 151 2612.
So, you probably have 3 important questions...
1) Are the plans exactly what I need?
The most common reason for planning applications being rejected by councils is that the accompanying plans are invalid. This is why Blackwell’s maps are specifically designed and approved to fulfil local authority planning application guidelines. See our samples below.
In fact many council planning departments already refer their customers to Blackwell’s.

|Scale 1:1250 / 1:2500||Yes|
|Scale 1:200 / 1:500||Yes|
|OS Crown copyright shown||Yes||Yes|
|Shows proposal in context of surrounding area||Yes|
|Shows development in more detail||Yes|
