We note that Reg 5(3) of the APFP Regulations requests that: (3) Any plans, drawings or sections required to be provided by paragraph (2) shall be no larger than A0 size, shall be drawn to an identified scale (not smaller than 1:2500) and, in the case of plans, shall show the direction of North. Does this apply to all plans/ drawings submitted with the application (such as those to be included within the Environmental Statement) or is it only the specific Plans specified in paragraph (2) of the Regulations? We consider that certain plans within the ES would be better to be presented on a single plan at a scale larger than 1:2500 (i.e. a departure from the 1:2500 scale at A0 referenced above). Please can you advise whether this is acceptable?
Regarding your query about the appropriate presentation of plans submitted with the application, the requirements of Regulation 5(3) of the Infrastructure Planning (Applications: Prescribed Forms and Procedure) Regulations 2009 should generally be taken to apply to any plans/ drawings submitted with the application; however, there is a degree of flexibility in terms of the plans submitted as part of the Environmental Statement, in that referenced plans may be presented at an appropriate scale to convey the information clearly. Further advice in relation to the presentation of figures and plans in the Environmental Statement can be found in the Planning Inspectorate’s Advice Note Seven: Environmental Impact Assessment: Process, Preliminary Environmental Information and Environmental Statements [attachment 1].
