Drawing standard - landscape plan

Landscaping plans should accurately show:

  • a scale bar or a measured dimension
  • the position and spread of the existing trees
  • details of any trees to be retained and measures to be taken to protect the trees
  • the species of the trees and details of their condition
  • an indication of which, if any, trees are to be felled
  • details of the size, species, and positions of trees to be planted and boundary treatments

Landscaping schemes

In many instances the submission of landscaping details can be a condition of the planning permission. In some cases specialist detail, for example a tree survey or detailed design, may be required when submitting landscaping schemes.

It is recommended that you discuss scope and detail required with the planning officers prior to submission.
