Planning permission is necessary for any building project that has an impact on the visual or civic environment of a given location. Even extensions to one’s own house may require planning permission if they are visible in any way from the exterior of the property or affect its value in a significant fashion.
For your construction project to be an overall success every step involved in the construction must be precise & accurate, for this vision you can hire experienced architects via https://spiveyarchitects.com/.
Proper applications will include maps for planning permission purposes, which are intended to show both the specific site of the build and also the location of that site in terms of its wider environment.
The first map is known as the site plan. Its purpose is to show the existing site of the intended build before any alterations have been made to it.
That allows the local authority responsible for granting or denying planning permission to forecast, in some detail, how the proposed project will visually and physically impact its immediate location. It also makes clear whether or not the site in question is fit for the intended construction.
Maps for planning permission purposes also, as above, need to show the location of the site as a whole about the area in which it sits. These second types of planning maps are known as location plans, and they perform the same function as the site plans but on a macro scale.
The location plan will allow planning authorities to work out how an intended construction will visually, economically, and practices affect the area in which it is to sit: so, for example, a proposed supermarket site, when viewed on a location plan, will be considered concerning its nearness to available roads, housing estates, other supermarkets, and so on.
