A new service is being introduced at York Libraries to help residents who are submitting planning applications for extensions or loft conversions to their properties.

Residents are now able to walk in to three York libraries with their address and postcode details and can purchase specially printed site plans and location plans of their properties. These two documents are often needed when submitting planning applications to the council.

Cllr Sonja Crisp, Cabinet Member for Leisure, Culture and Tourism said: “Residents will soon have the convenience of being able to order detailed location and site plans to support their planning application from York, Acomb and Tang Hall Explore Library Learning Centres. This is an example of the increasingly different ways libraries can help source and provide information for residents in a number of different formats.”

The plans can provide information such as site boundaries, all buildings, roads and footpaths on land adjoining the site, including access arrangements and all Public Rights of Way crossing or adjoining the site.

Location and site plans will be available from £15 plus VAT and can be ordered by emailing libraries@york.gov.ukor visit any of these venues in person.

Anyone with any enquiries on the new service can contact libraries@york.gov.uk or visit http://www.york.gov.uk/siteplanservice
