Critical Dimensions and a Recognised Metric Scale

All plans and drawings submitted are required to have critical dimensions and a recognised metric scale marked on them.

If plans are received without critical dimensions no further checks will be made until they are received. Critical dimensions include heights, width and length of buildings and extensions, and distances to site boundaries. These are necessary to ensure the plans are readable on our web site and to ensure that it is clear what you are applying for and what the Council are granting permission for.
