A site plan ( also known as a plot plan or a block plan) is a form of drawing used by architects, landscape architects, urban planners, and engineers to represent actual and projected conditions for a specific area, often a parcel of land that is to be altered. Buildings, roads, walkways and paths/trails, parking, drainage facilities, sanitary sewage lines, water lines, lighting, and landscaping and garden components are all commonly included on a site plan.
When applying for planning approval, the local authority has a standard need for drawings that offer information on the proposed changes. A Location Plan and Block Plan will almost certainly be necessary if you are filing a somewhat conventional planning application. This might also incorporate a site plan. A location plan is based on an ordnance survey map, which is typically printed at a scale of 1:1250 on an A4 sheet of paper. The suggested site will be highlighted in red on the location plan. It will also depict the size, a north point, and any important structures and roads that indicate the location of the planned site.
The following list includes suggestions on what to include in a site plan as well as some basic needs. All of these features are not necessarily required, but they can act as a checklist when you create your site ideas.
