Existing and Proposed Elevations

The preferred electronic document types are PDFs although other formats can be submitted.

When required?

In all cases where the elevations will change as a result of the proposal.

What is required?

Elevations should:

  • be drawn to a scale of 1:50 or 1:100;
  • show clearly the proposed works in relation to what is already there;
  • all sides of the proposal must be shown and these should indicate, where possible, the proposed building materials and the style, materials and finish of windows and doors;
  • blank elevations must also be included; if only to show that this is in fact the case.


For new buildings or structures the following should be included:

  • existing site levels;
  • finished floor levels and finished height;
  • with levels related to a fixed datum point off site or shown in relation to adjoining buildings.
