Community right to buy abandoned, neglected or detrimental land: information for communities
Submitting Compliant Maps, Plans And Other Drawings

Submitting Compliant Maps, Plans And Other Drawings

At least two maps, plans or other drawings should be submitted with an application.

The first of these is a community boundary map or drawing, showing the entire boundary location of the community according to the community definition as set out in the articles of association, constitution or registered rules.

The second of these is a map, plan or drawing of the land in relation to the application which is being made. This can be a map accompanying a title deed, or a close up of the immediate area around the land to be registered, however the map must conform with the requirements of the community right to buy regulations.

Maps, plans or other drawings must clearly show:

  • a map grid reference, such as a four-figure Ordinance Survey Grid Reference (e.g. NT1234);
  • a Northing;
  • the scale to which the map is drawn; and
  • the boundary of the land or community. Using a distinctive colour helps distinguish it from surrounding areas.

Please include an arrow pointing from the map grid reference to its location on the map.

To be aware:

Please ensure that all maps provided fully comply with sections 3 and 4 of the application form.
