Floor plans

Guidance on how to correctly produce floor plans to accompany a planning application.

Floor plans are required to show new development and for existing buildings altered by the proposed development. These should:

  • Show walls with a dimensions (a thickness/width) not just a single line
  • highlight any existing walls or buildings that are to be demolished, where applicable.
  • Show windows and doors

In addition to the requirements above the floor plan should also show the following information

  • Date                  
  • Site address
  • What scale the plan is drawn to
  • The plan type and, where appropriate, whether the plan shows the site as 'Existing' or 'Proposed'
