If you are building more than five dwellings on a site, you are now required to submit a landscaping scheme along with your planning application. Without this landscaping plan, your application will be instantly rejected. The following outlines what is required in the plant to ensure that it gets through planning permission:
- The name and location of the proposed development,
- The name of the applicant,
- Planning reference number (if submitted as a condition of a planning consent) and drawing reference number,
- North Point,
- Existing trees and shrubs to be retained or removed – Tree Survey,
- Proposed tree and shrubs planting,
- A plant schedule, which included the name of species to be used, quantities, stock sizes and planting distances or densities,
- Landscape specification notes, including ground preparation, soil cultivation, mulch, grass seed or turf mix, maintenance and any proposed tree surgery,
- Scale of plan, which should either be 1:200, or 1:100,
- All constraints, such as services laid out on the plan.
If you require a landscaping scheme for a private project or to include with your planning application pack, you can be assured that the landscaping plan that we will provide will tick all of the necessary boxes.
