The benefits of buying plans through the Planning Portal

There are many reasons why plans can be deemed invalid by LPAs. These include:

  • the correct license might not be in place
  • the plan might be out of date
  • the plan has been used for a previous application
  • the plan hasn't been marked up correctly

Submitting an invalid plan can delay your application with problems arising from boundary disputes if the plan is out of date and it can mean a resubmission cost. By purchasing your plans from one of the Planning Portal's accredited suppliers you are safe in the knowledge that:

  • your plan is sourced from Ordnance Survey up-to-date mapping
  • the scale of the plan will be correct
  • the plan will be accepted by all Local Planning Authorities and is suitable for planning applications

Our suppliers sell plans in a variety of scales and hectare sizes to suit every planning application type and include easy-to-use drawing tools to assist you in marking up your property. There are many other benefits of buying your map through one of our accredited suppliers such as:

  • You can view your plan before you buy it
  • You can highlight boundaries and annotate the map without the need for additional software
  • There is no need to convert your plans file format for submitting via the Planning Portal - the plans are ready to easily attach to your application and in the correct format
  • Purchase your plan when you need it - either before or during the planning application process
