What are landscape drawings for planning discharge?
Obviously, it is always great news if the local authority has granted planning permission for your project, it does not always stop there. It is common for any extensive refurbishment or new build projects to satisfy several planning conditions before any construction work can start and landscape drawings may be one of them.
This niche service covers a specialist area of design. How does it work?
Common planning discharge conditions require detailed plans showing all hard and soft landscaping items, plans showing how all boundary fences, including hedging or enclosures will look. Some projects also require a full written specification of all items associated with implementation and future management of the landscape.
My landscape planning drawings will show the following: –
A master landscape drawing where all external spaces and surface detailing will be outlined.
A detailed soft landscaping drawing. This will show all current trees and shrubs that will remain and names and quantities of all new proposed plants that will be planted at the end of the construction phase. A detailed written ‘plant schedule’ is added, which includes all information on the names and numbers of all new plants, as well as their size at the time of ordering.
A boundary elevation plan. This will include details of any fencing, gates, hedging entrance ways etc., both new and existing, that form the boundary of the property or site.
Finally, a written plant specification. This information is commonly required for larger private or commercial developments. It includes items associated with implementation and future management of the landscape, such as appropriate methods of soil preparation, planting techniques and soil depths. It often includes an in-depth annual maintenance plan.
