Ordnance Survey mapping service

Site-centred Ordnance Survey (OS) maps suitable for Planning Applications.

Leicestershire County Council libraries can deliver large-scale site-centred Ordnance Survey (OS) maps suitable for:

  • Planning Applications
  • Presentations and Reports
  • Home Referencing
  • Conveyancing
  • Insurance Claims
  • Property Location Plans

A Sitemap is the product you require if you are applying for planning permission. It is a highly detailed site-centred Ordnance Survey mapping. OS Sitemaps are accepted by all the District and Borough Councils in Leicestershire.

A Sitemap planning pack contains 6 paper copies of a site-centred map for one site. The cost of this service is £25 for 6 x A4 1:1250 scale urban maps.

Larger printouts, other scale maps and non-urban maps are available. Please ask a member of library staff for details and prices. Payment is by cash or card. Card payments are only accepted from library members.

OS Sitemaps can be supplied as a PDF file or DXF (data) file, which incurs a VAT charge.
