Planning a new development is a great thing to do, but for some people it is impossible to get the plan they want to use approved. Often, the reason that the plans are not being approved is that the maps they are using are inaccurate and did not show the details as to what sort of changes they wanted to make. To overcome this issue, developers need to know how important it is for them to use up to date accurate maps, rather than having to rely on maps that are older or outdated.
These maps must show all the proper markings of all the roads and entrances. A development is often going to have roads running through it to reach every single house in the project. The plans also need to show in detail, the drives coming onto these roads from each property. Since these are going to be put in place, they need to be accurately depicted to guarantee that the planning office knows exactly where the roads are going to be. This way the planners can evaluate all of the impact the proposed roadways will have on the environment and the region. If any inaccuracies are found in the map, it is possible for the local authority to disapprove the plans because they do not match the maps the planning department are using.
Utilities are important to note and they must be accurately placed on the map for the developers. If the developer does not have the utilities properly marked on the map, the companies who are responsible for moving or installing the utilities may not be able to service the new buildings or at least, not within the budget put aside for this aspect of the project. The other thing with not showing utilities correctly is, the local authority will not be able to approve the project due to inaccuracies. This not only wastes time but also money because there is a fee to pay each time the plans are submitted. By using the proper maps the first time though, it is easier for people to get the plans approved and know that the utilities will be installed easily.
Waterways are an important item to protect and if they are not noted on the maps, it is possible for the plans to get sent back for re-evaluation. However, when the waterways are noted, it should be covered as to what is going to happen with the watershed from the development, how it is going to be directed around the waterway or be treated before it reaches the water. To do this properly, the developer is likely to be advised to use an accurate topographic map in addition, which will help them show the lands pitch and how it is going to be impacting the flow of water.
The accuracy of the maps being used will also help developers in getting the land plots marked off correctly. When a developer buys a large tract of land, they tend to subdivide into plots for each individual property. When they are doing the subdividing of the plots, they need to have accurate maps to guarantee that each lot is marked off properly. If the lots are not accurately marked on the maps, then they will not be right when people are buying the properties. This in turn can impact the buyers because it may not be clear where the boundaries are for each property, this could lead to disputes in the future over boundaries and as such, this needs to be avoided at all costs.
Generally when people are using an up to date accurate map, they will notice that it is easier to resell the properties as well. As mentioned earlier, the properties need to be properly divided on the map to get the most out of the sale. With the accurate maps, people tend to get more money because they can note the details that are present with the property and this allows people to know exactly what they are getting on the property. Without this, people may struggle to get the results they want to have in selling the property because no details are noted.
Generally when a developer buys a piece of land, they plan on reselling all the different plots of land within that piece. However, people will find that their planning application is very likely to fail if they do not have an accurate map to bring to the planning office at the local authority. By having the accurate map, though, the developer can take their plans to an authority and get the plans approved. Then the developer can start to work on developing the project so that it becomes what they originally planned.
