Ordinary Survey Copyright

Site location and block plans submitted with planning applications must be accurately drawn.

Havant Borough Council publishes planning application documents and plans on the council website. 

Our copyright agreement with Ordnance Survey means that we can only accept and publish plans produced using Ordnance Survey data provided it has a valid licence number; the licence having been issued by the Ordnance Survey and allowing the applicant/agent to use that information.
Alternatively, the map must identify the Ordnance Survey licensed supplier, the date the map was produced and the serial number of the map. This provides the necessary evidence that Ordnance Survey copyright is not being breached.
These details must be included, otherwise your application will not be accepted by the council and will be classed as being invalid which will delay your application until the information is received.
The council will accept Site survey plans drawn by a surveyor which must carry a statement to that effect and confirming that Ordnance Survey information has not been used.

Non-compliance with Ordinary Survey Copyright can also lead to legal proceedings and a fine.

Appropriate licensed plans can be obtained from the Ordnance Survey website.
