A site plan is a set of construction drawings that a builder or contractor uses to make improvements to a property. The site plan verifies that local development codes are being met and as a historical resource for future reference. Site plans are often prepared by a design consultant who must be either a licensed engineer, architect, licensed builder or land surveyor. These plans are a council/private certifier requirement for an application submission.
