Plot Plans

A Plot Plan is the design diagram showing where proposed buildings (house, garage, …), lot elevations, and utility right-of-ways are in relation to property boundaries. Plot plans are generally required to be submitted and approved by municipalities before construction begins.

The Plot Plan is one of the first steps required in the home building process and often accompanies the request for a Development Permit.

Plot plans must indicate that the development on the property will be compliant with local bylaws. E.g. some municipalities require a 4-foot setback from the property line whereas others require a 6.5-foot setback. If the Plot Plan does not meet municipal requirements it will not be approved and construction cannot begin.

Generally it is the designer or architect of the project that produces the Plot Plan. If needed Axiom Geomatics is able to create the required document so your project can begin.
